Urban Landscape comes alive, 31 May, 2012

The painting is showing its vitality, as more of the strong colors are filled in.  The underlying structure is ethereal; the coloration is strongly grounded.  Much more to go!

image: "Mingle" abstract

"Mingle" abstract

This is a recent colored pencil piece, an abstract based around non-geometric figures which overlap and relate to each other.  Once the figures were in place, it was such fun to add colors, exploring the mingling of these figures. Dimensions are 9" x 11."  Colored pencil on paper.  Completed in two days.
