I was looking at some demo/tutorials from John Lovette (the artist, not the actor) on his website. There was a demo of this painting done in a different style than my own, but it did have the benefit of being explained well. I was playing around in my sketchbook and produced this image and I kinda liked it. It occurred to me that it might make a nice line and wash, so the next morning, I painted Mange Ici. I was pleased with how it turned out.
