Back to Blogging and Stepping Out

After a long break, okay an extra long break I am entering back into the blogging world. It was a long extended summer, now I'm back and ready to get back into the art scene.

Soooooooo........ For this next quarter, I will be stepping out of my comfort zone and trying some new stuff, working with colors that frighten me; that is that I don't usually use and stay away from. Like red and orange. Working on some small pieces and a large one.

Let's begin with this black and white. I found this piece of wood and it was asking to be doodled on. It was a little intimidating to make the first line but I survived it.
In my next post you will see the next steps cause it's not done yet.

After many hours of ink work, I was happy with the outcome. Now to add some color. It screamed "make me red". Red is not my thing- truly it isn't but I needed to try. If I didn't like it, it was worth the risk.
