Flowers, a bird, and flowers again



Pages I did drawing from photos I found here and there, and adding quotes I like. I like how this one turned, I almost felt like I was controlling the way the paint went, for once. Nice feeling : ) !


This one, I'm disapointed with it, it looked a lot better when still just in black and white. Only thing I like is the branch, and I really learned something while doing it, so I'm glad anyway.



And this one I really like. I added the thick lines after the paint, I usually don't use that thick pen but I like the result.


And I love that quote, even though I'm not sure I understand it correctly. I helps me in my daily life, anyway, gives me some kind of guidance to where I need to go, what I need to do.

I like collecting quotes too, the Tom Robbins one is a new one to me. Lovely work!

You are really doing nicely with these quotes. The only trouble with your bird is he isn't much different than the background. Could you lighten him just a bit at least on the highlight areas? I think it's nice as is but that may make you like it better too. You are picking nice quotes and making nice paintings to go with them.

What super pages. I especially like the first one - and I guess that quote from Picasso speaks to all we folks in EDM!

love the rich colors on these pages. =) Can't say enough about your book cover drawings, they are awesome as always. Thanks for commenting.
