MY COMMENTS:
This painting/drawing started as a pen and ink drawing - then added ink washes - and then added acrylic washes. I scanned in the image and I only have an A4 scanner - so therefore some of the image is cropped but I hope you get the feel of it.
It was a drawing that became a painting.

you gain a great benefit from the work you have done with shell like shapes and creamy feminine folds.
nice plant flesh, pot flesh, shadow flesh

Man, what is it about this kind of work, the ink and wash. Maybe cause I get to see such wonder full examples like this.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, and offer a critique, if it were mine, I would have used blue instead of orange, MHO and I am prepared to be very very wrong.

Thank you harv for showing this!

I love it. Crisp and alive! The black ink provides a wonderful black. Excellent perspective and good choice of colours. I like the fact that it seems to float between a painting and a drawing.
