I am still playing with my markers and colored pencils.Using line and color is not only fun but is very rewarding. While doing these geometric drawings I think about every line – will it be thick or thin? will it be vertical, horizontal or diagonal? What value will it have? I felt so drawn to this design that I seriously considered leaving it black and white

I decided to use a vibrant yellow-green and to use only this one rather neon color. The design is rather complex and I wanted to keep the color scheme simple. I think it works!

The gray scale markers are cool gray rather than the warm gray markers. I think that’s why they look almost blue beside the yellow-green. The warm gray markers frequently look pink in photographs.

I am having so much fun working with my markers and colored pencils…with line and circle. Here is another drawing done with my gray scale markers. You may remember that I am trying to work on developing good compositions when I do these. This drawing has a major flaw (in my mind). I believe the top right section would look more balanced and interesting if the lines came off like rays of the sun or were at least angled more sharply.

With this drawing I wanted minimal, soft color and used pink, blue and purple. I thought of color as an embellishment rather than a major component.
