You really do have a gift for these. In your "sparse woman" some saw birds. In this "sparse bird" I also see a woman.

That maroon color is one of my favs too, and it sets such a deep tone for the feeling of flight. I can hear the beat of the wings...

The color is beautiful!
I like your flowing, curvilinear lines.

Nice use of lines Marc.

I see a woman napping...;)

I see the bird and egg but if this was untitled I believe my eye would find the woman first. The sinous nature of the line, you see. I have a fondness for line drawings and this is well done.

thank goodness for imaginations! Yah imaginations! Marc this series is very sensual. Have you ever dabbled in Marketing/Advertising? I seem to recall some comment regarding the cover of a woman's deodorant on your other. lol. But, in reality, you really do have a knack for elegant simplicity, which catches a viewers eyes and triggers them to investigate in more depth.

Good series.

Really dig this one. So elegant & fluid. Great work marc. Is this a wacom? Ever thought about painting one of these after you create them in wacom? I'm betting you could get big $$ for them!

Adrienne, Surreal, Rapolina, Judith, Tamana, Xerielle - and the lone boy Somerset (I hope I got the genders right) - whew! ;) Thank you all.

Adrienne - it was thanks to you that I started this series with the golden tree. :)

Somerset and Judith - it's funny, I was going for some female figure at first with my first line (the strong diagonal), but then quickly went elsewhere.. I didn't really want to name it, but bird was what came closest to mind.. could be renamed.

Tamana - I like strong graphic design, but I've never gotten into the business..

Xerielle - I'm hoping maybe when I get better at drawing I'll be able to move as freely as on the computer.. it was done with a wacom, yes - the advantage over using a brush or pen is that you can so easily erase your mistakes (which I make so many of). I'd love to sell them for $$ :D

I'm leaving this abstract/contemporary forum for a while, there's way too much nastiness going on here. I'll be posting in places like drawing&sketching and figure studies instead.

Yep, I like the quality of line here a lot better. The "Jenny" drawing with the Steril charcol software had nowhere the character this has. I'm glad you pointed me over here. thanks

Thank you Carrie. I'll try to pay more attention to the quality of the line itself.. I was just trying to show the shape in that other one, make the curves play out..

brighten up a white wall
curvy and volumous

Does that mean 'maybe yes'? ;)
