Inks are colored... or not!

In black and white or in color, drawings take on the aspect of an engraving or a comic strip. This brings a new artistic dimension when they are produced from my photos.

The black and white in India ink give a lot of difficulties to the software that I develop (WoA!, for Work of Art, it is also an onomatopoeia expressing a good surprise): it is indeed necessary to find a balance between the density of strokes and the simplicity of the line. The opacity of the ink can play a big role too, as well as large flat areas.

For colors, « line » drawing is perfectly complemented with watercolors or colored pencils, or both together. The happy combination of black and white and color is well suited to a rendering of the comic strip type, or of old engraving as one could see in the newspapers and advertisements of the beginning of the 20th century.

It took the Metropolitan Museum of Art nearly 50 years to wake up to Pablo Picasso. It didn't own one of his paintings until 1946, when Gertrude Stein bequeathed that indomitable quasi-Cubistic picture of herself - a portrait of the writer as a sumo Buddha - to the Met, principally because she disliked the Museum of Modern Art.
