pen/ink abstract drawing.. enhanced with PSE 8 adding film grain effect.
This pen/ink drawing is a couple of months of detail/doodling from 2011 to 2012 and the final touch was adding color with acrylic paints..
tonight..01/06/2012.. my need, my thirst to create….
This reminds me of my landscaping days in SC. spreading Coquina shell mixture for driveways and pathways in yards on Kiowa and Sea brook Islands 1989-1992
Some very fond memories for me of my life in South Carolina!!
It is a wonderful mixture of natural resources from the area..
Definition of Coquina:
Coquina (play /koʊˈkiːnə/; Spanish: “cockle”) is a sedimentary rock that is composed either wholly or almost entirely of the transported, abraded, and mechanically sorted fragments of the shells of either molluscs, trilobites, brachiopods, or other invertebrates. For a sediment to be considered to be a coquina, the average size of the particles composing it should be 2 mm or greater in size. Coquina can vary in hardness from poorly to moderately-cemented. The term “coquina” is derived from the Spanish word for cockleshells or shellfish.[
