LOL...I just love how you waffle on. Your drawing is beautiful.
I am so glad you're back! Oh, I think the blue is a go! And purple? Small doses would be great! LOL. I enjoy listening to you think aloud. Another wonderful AJ drawing!
A delight, as ever. I look forward to seeing your further experiments with additional colour. This is lovely, and although I think I probably agree about the purple, I love all the others and think they work fine. The Van Gogh button is a mini-masterpiece in itself! :)
I think the color looks great. Another beautiful drawing :)
Alas Andrea,We all suffer with colour complications,it's the nature of the beast...!At any rate, I noticed that your sepia ink does not bleed, whereas my Rapidograph Brown hemorrhages a burnt sienna whenever water goes near it.May I ask you to share with me the sepia pen ink you are using.Neil
Far out, AJ!!! Gosh, any reference to Harvest and i get chills. I like your use of color there. It works well with Sepia. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us.
It's like awesome Andrea. I really love the color. Just makes it beautifuler.
wow :-)i love it. such tiny little wonderful details and type to boot :-)only thing i'd say on the color is for this composition purple only exists in the one sphere - i'd like to see it again in another sphere for balance as well as how lovely it looks with the sepia.
Not waffling enough for me! ;) I loved the 70s until punk came along - I saw an article on the BBC about 1976 being the year when we were most happy so I guess I'm not the only one! These are just lovely, really subtle, I love seeing more colour in your work!
Thank you folks,Felicity, I did waffle for a lot longer but, after second thoughts, I decided to edit most of it out. You know how it goes? Never post late at night or early in the morning. The purple doesn't work, IMO. I need more practice with the colours.Neil, I use the Pilot G-Tec, however it too hemorrhages a burnt sienna when it gets wet. I have used colour pencils in this one.Thank you all, I wasn't going to post this, but am glad I did now.
I love your blog, you do incredible detail in your drawings. Every post is such great fun to explore!
Ah, that explains it! :) Yep, early in the morning/late at night but I can waffle all afternoon too!
Just go with the flow man. Digging those positive 70's vibes... Groooooovy!
Hi AJOn revisiting this picture I find that the values are muted and soft and therefore helps them easily work with each other, for better or worse. I don't think that you have attempted to use colour to help us interpret anything significant, your chosen colours and values were a safe bet. Had any one colour value been stronger, we would likely attribute more significance to it and perhaps see things differently. That being said I am always inspired by your studies Neil
Your work is amazing. How do you do it?I am a child of the 70's and I can so relate.
Thank you, folks.
me too! happy to see your back at what you do best! Not that i can really say that you probably are good at everything! i do love what you do!
