One of the most captivating aspects of serial imagery is the exploration of taking one’s story line further. There are so many ways you can challenge yourself and your viewers. Here I look at the same composition from a variety of vantage points. Each tells a different story.
By doing this, I can fully explore different relationships of color, space, and form
Zooming in on the underside of the urn one can better see how the flowers nestle in and are impacted by the dark hues and shadows.
The spatial aspects of the composition balance the clustered floral forms.

I recently have been working with mixed media works using colored pencil and watercolor. This first piece of a pileated woodpecker is the contour which provides the framework for my drawing. I can’t stress enough how important this stage is in revealing your personality as an artist, demonstrating form in the subject, and laying out your composition. I draw quite blind and by that I mean I keep my eye on the subject and let my hand become a tool of the eye. Prismacolor is one brand of colored pencil I use often.
