I so often work in monotone and as a rule I love it. But I craved some colour. Perhaps it was the snow day yesterday that flattened my vision of spring for another few weeks but sparked my need to put something bright on paper.
This is a 6 x 6 piece done in coloured pencil on Canson paper. The cherry is my throwback to realizm and the background - well I'm not sure quite what the background is or even if it is finished yet. The background has an abstract feel to it, which is far removed from what I usually do. But the colours pop and create my own version of spring.
