I have always loved blue in all its variations. My preference for blue show up not only in my artwork but also in the clothes I wear and in home decor (the color of the sofa, throw cushions, draperies). The only place where there is no use for blue is in the food I make!
Of late, I have been making art (in various forms) with lots of blue. It has been quiet intentional, a way of branding my art. I also feel that when I do something in blue it usually comes out better. The picture above and below are little gems created on river rocks. The third picture is a pattern on a blue background drawn on a cigar box inspired by indigo dyed Indian bed linens.
The last photo below is a pencil sketch I made last night. I leave it to you to guess who it is. In drawing this sketch I followed a tip given by a well known cartoonist which is to focus on the most distinguishing feature of the subject and to exaggerate it, like Carter's teeth, Bill Clinton's nose or Obama's ears. Here I focused on the hairdo. My daughter thinks it is the lips that is the giveaway. You be the judge :)
