Untitled (In Colour)

I have now finished exploring the 'lymph nodes' idea and, as promised, am going to try them out in colour. This is a collage of 'Untitled' (You can see the original here). 

I'm really pleased with how this turned out but my god it took an age to do! I might try another technique for the next one.

(I can't believe we are now into June and it is time to do another draw to see who shall win one of May's drawings! I shall do the draw in the next couple of days)

If I didn't know of the inspiration behind the lymph node drawings, Carol, I would think this was completely whimsical. The colors add a whole different level.

Jennifer - I was really really pleased with how it turned out. I wasn't sure if the colour would work so, given how long it took to do, was relieved and pleased with the final image.

Talon - They do look quite whimsical don't they. In some instances they look totally different from the starting point. I enjoy that about the drawing process cause often they take on a life of their own and end up looking quite different to what I thought they would.

oh goodness... I leapt at this one then realised it was a June not May shot! Dagnabbit, I love this!

DK - I'm glad you like this one but am sorry that it's not one of May's. The original will be for sale at some point and I will also be getting prints done of it so can give you a shout when they are ready if you like?
