GETTING SOMEWHERE!

This is another drawing on photo paper, adding watercolor, collage with tissue paper, add more line, white gesso and more paint and little more collage.  This looks more like the combination of line, color, texture, realism and mystery that I am striving for.  Onward!!

When I looked at your recent work and read how critical you were of it, I didn't understand, but when I see this...now I get it!

this is really beautiful --the lines and the eyes remind me of Leonardo da-Vinci sketches!!!

Janet Belich said...

OH, YES.
This wonderful. You got all of the above and more. Simple, complex...( or simply complex ?) Love the rich color and subtle lines.I see something new each time I look at him. I really like this, Myrna.

Hi Janice,
The more practiced we get, the higher the bar is set.

Thank you, Meera, for putting me in such exalted company!

Thanks, Kathy, for always taking the time to stop by and making a comment.

Thank you , Heather. Hope school is going well.

Janet, I appreciate your assessment.

Hi Stan, The variation of the line weight comes from the tool. I hope you try working with a coffee stirrer. Lot's of fun!

Hi Julie, Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

Nancy, I hope we all inspire each other.
