dare 91 - 3 of a kind


This was another nice template! I very often take a long time to complete them, so I've tried to work faster this time and managed to get two versions moe or less  ready to exhibit. Since I printed the template 3 times, I'll do 3 versions! The centre of "prickly pears" is not nearly as bright as on the original. My scanner does not like pink. I left off colouring everything in sight on the "roundabout with birds", but I might decide to add colour to the outside skateboard shapes later. I used different pens on the 3rd one.  On "bits and bows" the colours are more accurate but the gold looks like tired yellow. It's the luck of the draw what the scanner makes of the colours!

Dots, dashes and more aquafleur

This doodle is lighter and airier than most of my work. I don't really know why. I think I was at a point when I had to ask myself What next? It's time to stop then, I think. I've ruined many drawings and paintings by ignoring that question! It's all a question of timing, I suppose...
