"Let it Bee"


"Let it Bee" 
Polychromos and Prismacolors on Arches Hot pressed paper
15 x 22  $900.00

I finished this drawing this weekend.  It was a lot of fun.  I have
never really done a fuzzy, out of focus background before.  It was
a challenge at first, until I figured out what I needed to do. 
The white flowers are a mixture of so many different
colors: purple, grey, blue, gold.  All of those colors will blend
to create a shadow on a white surface.  It is often influenced by the
other colors being reflected by the white surface.  The white
that you do see is plain paper.  I use an electric eraser to clean up
the white areas...they can get kinda smudged as you are working.
