Man and Woman 1 May 2009 (approximately 3"x6", watercolor and India Ink on paper)

I am not very into this one… the overall drawing and layout are a bit staid. The faces rather generic. The color not all that compelling either.

It falls into a category of pieces that I do now and then: a man and a woman who are not all that compatible. This often happens because I work directly in pen, so I draw one (usually the man) first, then add in the other, so they don’t quite mesh. I then frequently exaggerate this by coloring them differently. He’s all warm purple and blue, with blue-green and pink undertones. She’s green, with warmer orange undertones.
