Using lots of colour was the primary motivation with this drawing. I did the outlines, filled in the centres with three shades of watercolour pencils, then went over them roughly with water. I put the centre strokes in while the paper was still wet, which resulted in darker, more intense coloured lines. The central black ink lines were the last thing to be added. I like this envelope a lot more in real life - it seemed to lose some vitality in the scanning process.
