Welcome to Pen & Ink!

Although I usually like things to be more realistic, I find this visually exciting and interesting. The lively ink work and the colours work well in this piece.

Well done!

BTW, what size is this piece??

Welcome to Pen & Ink forum.

I agree with Chris, The colors are fabulous.

Welcome! I too must agree with Seejay. Post more when you can!

P.S. Love your Cornell quote too -- one of my favorites. :D

WELCOME to the Pen & Ink forum ordie4 :) I like the loose lines in this. Nice painting!!

PS: Try to remember to use the "Butt" icon when posting an art piece that has any type of nudity in it :D:)

seejay, thanks. i have a hard time with realism. not sure if it is lack of patience or.... 5.5" x 7.5" on 140 lb wc paper

phillip - thanks!

monica - i'll be working on more. glad you like

dude - thanks. sorry about the icon. usually not much into figures in the past so the icon didn't even dawn on me as i was running down the "posting" screen. more careful in the future!

nice to meet new faces in the wc! crowd!

Hey ordie, welcome to the P&I forum. Like the intensity of the color. Nice loose abstract look to it. :)

Ordie4, this is lovely! I love all the bright colors. The style reminds me of something I've seen recently, but I can't think of what. I think my brain has already shut down for the day . . . :D

Wow....wonderful.:clap: :clap:
If I try to paint in this style it always looks like a five year old has been splashing around.:D When you do it... it looks like ART.
I love the wonky table and chair:cat:
