TIPS ON THE RIGHT ART SUPPLY

Sometimes, choosing the right paper is half the job. I love the way the grain of this paper is just right for indicating the misty & moody fall hues, 


thru the use of graphite & pastel.

FALL HUES OUTSIDE MY STUDIO

Another morning of trying to capture the light & atmosphere. I want to emphasis the contrast between the yellow foliage against the dark silhouette of the meadow.

Adding other colors would change the mood of the scene.

BEHIND THE SCENE, revisiting some old ideas

A collection is never finish. Some late daisy from my garden, last week, inspire me to dig out some illustrations from my archive...



Revisiting & experimenting with icons & texture. Photoshop allows me to try out a few variations fairly quickly.
