Jester art was a subject which I had been toying with in my head for quite some time.
I have always admired the artwork of Alan King who used Jesters as his main subject matter.
I wanted to bring my own ideas to the Jester and it is difficult because it is such an often visited subject in many different arenas. This is my first such piece and only time will tell if I do indeed revisit the subject.
I worked on this artwork quite differently in that a light touch was used throughout. This is a recommended technique employed by many coloured pencil artists but I am usually much more heavy-handed. I am finding both techniques are working for me though.
