Line and Brush Work

Ya never know what these boys are up to. Even in context, a person sometimes has to wonder what's going on in the Okefenokee. I constantly marvel at Kelly's line and brush work, making things solid, yet light. And again, detail such as the the bird finial is unnecessary, yet delightful.

  1. I think what I like most is the dark thick lines on the back of the litter near Howland. They suggest slatted woodwork in shadow and there's even some suggestion of shadow cast off the owl there.

    Albert should be in back though, cause when he sets that thing down he's gonna squish his tailbones under it, the lunkhead.

    1. They're all such lunkheads, aren't they?

  2. For someone who claimed they'd post irregularly, you're doing a pretty good job so far. I'm having a hard time keeping up! Not that I'm complaining. I like coming home to pleasant surprises such as these.

    And I adore Howland's gesture and expression. Great mix of exhaustion and bewilderment.

    1. And Albert, like he's walking on air.

      Loren, I'm having such a good time doing these posts. I'm actually close to doing more than one per day, but I'm holding myself back so that it'll all last a little longer.

    2. I am super happy and excited to hear that. Keep up the good work!
