Illustration for a poem
Posted 2 weeks ago and submitted by Lyn Stone | Share link:

Tyger Tyger, burning bright, 
In the forests of the night; 
What immortal hand or eye, 
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

The first verse of William Blake’s The Tyger poem. I do occasionally work conventionally with my hands, a brush and paint, and this is one example. Funnily enough it was used to illustrate a poem for a client, so I feel the William Blake poetry is appropriate.

This has been hand-drawn and painted using artist’s quality watercolour paint on handmade watercolour paper. I actually prefer working this way, but digital art is often a more practical way of working, but it does rather depend on the commission. Some publishers require you to submit final artwork in ‘layers’, which, of course, is only possible if you have created the artwork digitally. So you can see what I mean!
