Illustration Friday is making it easy for me to continue with this series of drawings. As soon as I discovered that "fresh" was this week's theme I thought of "fresh" new shoots on plants. I like this illustration better than last week's -- maybe because I've done one in this format already and the second came more easily.

Looks like crayon on black paper :) I don't look at Flickr because it seizes my monitor - you can post images in blogger without a third party. This image is wonderful and organic, you should try manipulating it digitally with light fresh colours for another take:)

This is lovely, Andrea. It looks like four separate drawings that are growing into one another. I like the image on the bottom right the best; the contrast of the white blossoms against the solid grey background makes a nice contrast to the lacy roots. It's cool that each enclosure is broken by something's very fresh!

Draconas: I use crayon on black paper! :) But to be more specific, it's white pencil crayon, silver Sharpie, and white, siver and gold gel pens on Strathmore 400 Series acid free, medium weight, recycled lightly textured 60 lb. (wait for it..) black paper.

Anonymous: What? Are you implying I learn something new? :)As for posting images right to Blogger, I usually do that except when I'm posting artwork, as Flickr is higher res.

Mick and Alina: Thanks!

Carla: I tried to combine the two previous compositional styles on this one. It's a process... (a fun one!)

Hehe, not learn but try, just felt very intense for 'fresh' and thought it could be pushed further into another direction as a separate artpiece. I know you like to develop series :)
