Posts Tagged ‘ocean bird print’

caribbean sea bird print (c) bowenI’ve completed a new ink drawing, inspired by a bird who waited patiently in the Caribbean heat for a crumb of my sandwich, but all he got was his portrait sketched.

In this one, I’ve explained a little more about what inspired the colors and the details within the drawing in my shop description. I usually leave interpretation up to the viewer, but I’ve had some comments that readers like the descriptions, so I keep telling the story of what inspired the drawing or painting or technique.

At the same time, I wonder if describing in more detail the texture of the paper or the saturation of the inks would be more useful. The screen really doesn’t do them justice.

I’m really liking my ocean-inspired ink drawings — mesmerizing for me. They hold a little bit of those million-dollar moments for me. I think I’ll hang a few of the printer’s proofs in my new office.
