See T’Hed Fifty-Five for more…

It works… I think it works, right? The crayons spread the China marker and muddy the colours I choose for the skins… it shows less on larger faces, but adds some volume to these smaller ones. The subtle background colour choices really helped with allowing the gouache to make more visual play for the eye. I also really like how the music sheets lifted from the page to add both depth and texture. The choice of three floating squares wasn’t conscious; as you may know, I follow my instincts and here they gave some added symmetry to the composition… each face has it’s own floater… maybe they are personal protectors instead of passive observers.

Stay tuned…
