IMG_0600Rather than keep the drawing strong and complete, I decided to break it into smaller elements by adding gesso around three central shapes from the original image. Finally I used chromium green dry pigment rubbed into the gesso around the central shapes to give a velvety texture to the surrounding areas. The result is an image that is contained, yet suggestive of organic growth.
