contrasts

At this time of year I am always amazed at the contrast between the gray pastel landscape outside and the bright intense colors I enjoy surrounding myself with in my home...

Oh my, the tulips are just gorgeous, with that riotous purple background!! I think your work is exquisite :-)

I'm a fan of your work! your line work is restrained and minimal and the color accents it well. I think I would like to see one before and after it is painted.

This is beautiful. And then I clicked to see it bigger and it is even more lovely.

Thermion7—That is a good idea. I think I will try that. When I started sketching last summer I only used black pen, but then I needed the color.
