|Am I Blue?|
This is a large colored pencil (16x20) on Bristel Board. I wanted to do a study in transparency, and my grandmothers' old cobalt glassware were perfect. I chose the skulls as a sharp contrast in opaque-ness, and an artists' comment on the fragility of life. Deep, huh? Occasionally I go there! I am still a bit timid with the techniques of colored pencil, and having finished,wish that I had layered a bit more, or taken a class with an accomplished pencil artist. But on the whole, I accomplished what I set out to do. I enjoyed the experience, and learned something!
