Boundaries II

September 15, 2011

Color version of “Boundaries” with the addition of a tortoise and a hare… I’m not thrilled with this version, sometimes, oftentimes, a sketch works so much better than a finished piece.

    oh, BUT, BUT, BUT, BUT………………….I LOVE THIS VERSION. And here is why…in color I see: the carrot, the worm, and the fish all baiting the fish, penguin, and tortoise. I TOTALLY missed that in the pencil sketch. But, I am also a woman who adores color. It is rich and vibrant, and full of whimsy.

    Oh dearest, it is fabulous…but I know what you mean. My drawings are kept to a minimum, mostly because I don’t know HOW to handle color! Come see my silly drawings if you get a chance.

    The sketch has more movement, but the finished is lovely though ;:OD)

    I adore your artwork, as always–I’m sorry I haven’t been around much these past couple weeks. I spoke for a ladies retreat last week, we performed on the weekend and this morning my treasured and precious little sister was taken into emergency for a heart blockage. They say she will be fine after an angiogram and stent–but I won’t feel much better until I get to see her tomorrow.

    ((hugs)) Thanks for your patience. I am one of your biggest fans.

    Adorable! I’m going to have to agree in that I prefer the sketch. I think it’s the composition that makes it more appealing, because the sketch has a definite focal point, and the addition of the other animals spreads that out a bit. But the colored piece is really cutet, too. I really like your style! (Btw, found you through the Art Blog Hop). :o)

    I quite like this little parade of perambulatory persuasion, though the sketch is very appealing too– I guess I respond more to the story in this one, & it has a certain Rube Goldberg quality that I love. 🙂
