Moon River

Mixed media on Paper
13x18
Started this as a charcoal drawing but later I fell back into my habit of adding some bright color! The base paper was dark-ish gray so I added some white and blue for contrast.Looked like a river glittering in moonlight..hence the title.(BTW I love that song,too:))

  4. Arti, just go with this. It is a powerful series and you aren't often intended to see where you're going as you make your way.

    I love the way you made the light play on this guy's ears.
