My initial rendering of this pillow was soft and ethereal. It looked like a morning vision, with bright sunlight delineating the edges of the pillowcase. I was pleased with the drawing and put it down. When I took another look, I decided it was all wrong. It was not an illustration for “asleep”, this was “awaken”. I started to add some darkness to the image, getting rather aggressive with my strokes. The drawing seems more appropriate to the topic now but I’m not sure it’s a peaceful slumber.
