A New Technique for the New Year
I'm starting a new piece. I'm inspired by a memory from several years ago when I was visiting my parents in Arizona. They had a small cluster of almond trees in their back yard. The trees were full of blooms - the air was full of falling petals, and the ground was pink with almond petal "snow." A group of cottontails were feasting on the petals.
So this will be another piece in which I will experiment with using drawing in a collage.
Here's the drawing of the rabbits. I used HB, 2B, and 4B mechanical pencil. then lightly added bits of color with Derwent Drawing Pencils. I have a nice set of 24 pencils in natural, muted colors.
