More middle-of-the-night playing-with-inks postcards.
In this one the delicate nature of the blossoms went a little awry,
and mostly it was from overdoing the ink layers, then adding watercolors,
and every thing began to moosh around and so I blobbed it.
BIG blobs by accident… and then I needed to do more.
I’m not saying that it looks awful, just not what I wanted.
I rarely redo, but wanted to see if my hunch was right about how I should have handled this, and so went in again with same inks, no watercolors, leaving the field blank (of course I hadn’t blobbed it by accident) and added a touch of waterproof Platinum Carbon…
It is closer to the way I saw it in my mind’s eye.
Randy Boyd’s amazing gardenia, inked….
I love wild mustard fields, great expanses of yellow that crest a hill.
Home home home….

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. When I saw that first one, I gasped b/c of its beauty. I like it better than the second, also beautiful, version.

So true! Thank you!
I prefer the first, too – it ‘pops’ out at the viewer more. The second is still lovely, though. Also the wild mustard is gorgeous.
I love the mustard blooms!
Gorgeous flowers! I love flowers but I don’t particularly love to draw them. These look so wonderful. 🙂
