This mixed media piece is another progression of the piece I did in my last blog post. It combines a drawing I did in oil pastel combined with digital effects to mimic conte crayon, in this case with a wider variety of colors but still a conte crayon like result. This is possibly my favorite rendition of this image. Again, for people new to my blog, I've been working on and off on a long-time series based on close-up views of low to the ground plant life. Instead of simplifying my images I increase the complexity to emphasize the diverse abundance of nature allowed to run wild.
