"Floss" (Wash)

One of my recent reworks: color wash over the original pen & ink panel. Actually as of late I've taken to first doing the usual Derwent water-soluble wash pencil with black only for pushing back some rich value, letting that dry, and then hitting it up again with some Graphitint color for highlights, then finally a good soak in a clear varnish, which results for a lush piece that really stands in contrast against the print version. Trying to do one a day and catch up on the backlog of original material: makes for a nice warm-up exercise before penciling and/or inking in new cartoons.
