WDE Feb 6 2015, dandelion on rocks

Athena, thanks for the wonderful references. I wish I had more time to use more than one.

This is a half abstract experiment on indigo blue canson MT paper - rough side. Soft pastel 8x10"

nice. I like the brighter yellow against the kind of muted other colors.

Beautiful! It does have an abstract feel, I really like the way the indigo peeks through here and there.

love the pop of color from the flowers and the composition definitely keeps my eyes moving around the entire image, well done

Re: WDE Feb 6 2015, dandelion on rocks

Love how you have re-placed the yellow flower in the upper left, and then the composition, leads the eyes along the stems to the opposite corner. Wonderful soft darks !

I like this - all those little accents of unexpected colour are so pretty!

Mario, yes this has a lovely dab of abstract feeling and like the pastel media you chose! The fine interweaving lines make this a unique piece.
