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.
The line art for this had been sitting in a folder for months, but I finally finished it. And also discovered that my watercolor penmanship is sloppy. 🙂
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. 🙂
