New illustration study

25September 2007

Another bitTorrent study.  I am getting better at handling a circle in ink.  Eventually I will be good enough to paint a complete circle in oil perfectly.  At the moment I just take my time and slowly go over its outer edge, then move into the circle itself.

This composition seems unbalanced at first, and heavy toward the right.  But as you will notice, the unbalanced weight is reestablished by the open space between the arch and angle.  This composition would be most successful if used with a monotone background, lighter complementaries as the forms and triadic complements as the lines.
