Not a lot of artwork to show this week, but it’s because the pieces I worked on were difficult–and I even redid some. Hopefully, there will be more artwork next week!
Sydney Carton? Who’s that? Not someone I mention often, is it? 🙂 Actually, I’m playing around with outfit ideas for him. I’ve always pictured him in green, for some reason, and decided to use symbolism in the color: green represents life, renewal, rebirth–but I put him in a muddy shade of green to represent his decayed hopes and ambition. Brown is often associated with down-to-earth, wholesomeness, dependability–and that’s the color of his waistcoat, the hidden layer of both his personality and outfit.
Another pastel paper painting, this time blue paper with indigo watercolor and white gouache. The scene is one I’ve had in my mind for a long time, though I don’t know where it came from. Maybe I’ll work it into a story someday, like C. S. Lewis did with his image of a faun walking through a snowy wood.
Creative chaos, and a preview of another work-in-progress. 🙂
