Drawn In

taking back the joy of coloring

Coloring 041

This pair of drawings is a fantastic study in contrasting approaches. One uses minimal color and leaves vast amounts of white space. The other covers the drawing and beyond in rich layers of color.

Artist: Jill O’Brien

I love the subtle variations in the tones of brown in that first coloring; you really have to observe carefully. The second one makes me think of electricity under water. Bzzzt!
