The image size is 14 × 18 inches. I used archival ink and derwent graphitint watercolor pencils.
This is drawn on illustration board and took many hours. I completed the border over a year ago and could not decide what I wanted to put in the middle. I was originally going to call this drawing “If I Could Help Design An Antelope” but as I finished it I decided that it had an old world feeling to it and the name “Paradise” seemed to fit.
I have been drawing exotic borders since high school. I lightly pencil in the whole border, freehand, and then fill in the design with archival ink. I usually create the border first and then decide what I want to create to go with it.
you will not see this species anywhere as I dreamed it up:)
Any proceeds from the sale of cards from RB will be donated to The Philadelphia Mission. You may view their contact info. on my front page.
