The revised design for the St. Paul icon has been completed, enhancing the Coast Salish context of the icon. I will post more background to the icon and a photo once the writing is further along.
The image has been transposed onto the board, inked in, and I've spent the last few days in developing the base mid colours. This is the phase where adjustments are made to the colours so that each suits the overall balance of the composition and to correct how each is perceived next to its neighbouring colours. Neighbouring colours can completely change the appearance of a colour.
There will be a number of interesting challenges in accomplishing some details within this design.
