Well, here it is, “Rise”, the first completed drawing for my Dark Wing series. When I started this series I really had no idea how this was going to pan out. I mulled over what colors to use without full confidence on how they would work. From the completion of this one, I think it turned out pretty good. I have to admit though, I originally thought about going with a green background instead of blue. I’m glad I didn’t. I initially wanted to ink some of the feathers in red so the thought of a green background had me concerned that the drawing would end having that Christmasy (is that even a word) feeling, you know, green and red…Christmas colors. Anywho, the blue seems to fit better to me, although the red, blue and white now makes me think of Captain America. Smh. Oh well. I’m still working on titles for the next drawings but I’m sure they’ll come to me while I’m working on them. Stay tuned to see how they turn out. 😊
A little throwback to 2015 of a 9×12 mandala ink drawing that I did. I would really like to get around to doing another mandala similar to this but I think I have enough projects on my plate to keep me busy for a minute. I’ll just add that thought to my growing list of artistic endeavors.
On another note, I wish everyone safe holiday travels this weekend. I’m sure I’ll find myself smelling like BBQ and charcoal for the next couple of days. 😊
