May 21, 2007. Done with black ink and acrylic paints on 70 lb drawing paper, approximately 9x12 inches. This is mostly just a doodle. Wizards were showing up in my illuminated initials, so I thought he might want to come out and play on his own. For the crystal on his staff, I tried something new. I first made a puddle of acrylic varnish in the circle, then swirled in metallic blue, metallic green, and metallic purple paints. I used more varnish in the light areas, and more paint in the darker areas. It took a while to dry, but has nice depth when viewed in person.
