Computer colored version of a pen and ink drawing (mine). Abstract drawing of a walking figure coalescing from lines and patterns. The larger lines and blurring in the background suggest an image or landscape seen through a microscope, creating an otherworldly effect.
I have always wanted to add color, and subtle selective alterations in contrast and focus to my pen and ink drawings. Until recently color in these drawings was limited by the way colored pigment and media interact with the paper and fine lines.New advances in scanner resolution, monitor resolution, input devices, and image software have finally allowed me to get my images into a computer, modify them without losing my lines, and capture them digitally – and the color goes on just right.
