The Red Coat by janey-jane The Red Coat by janey-jane
Another old piece. Pen and ink...I think it's on bristol board.

Entirely traditional media done by hand without reference (it's my excuse for why her hand is all wonky). The main reason I drew her was for her hair, I had this idea for hair done with ball point pen and she's the result of that inspiration. The whole stark contrast graphic nature of the composition was an afterthought, but now that the piece is done I'm totally in love with the strong red against the black and white.

I thought about cleaning up the red in photoshop because the scan makes it look a bit blotchy, I don't know, should I?

i think winter is beautifull.. i like it when it snows, and there is a plain silence in the deep white all around.

I wish it snowed here :( , it is such a beautiful sight, everything looks clean and it makes the atmosphere so bright and surreal seeming. The silence is so unique too... a snow silence.

I'm a big fan of red, especially red coats since winter is so dull and dreary.

thank you! I had to mess with the hair for a long time before I was happy with it (the final is in ballpoint, but I did an underdrawing in pencil), but I'm pretty pleased with the result.

Another one that just jumps out at me...

I am confused at the lack of comments, as I personally think this piece is great. =D

I like the idea you had going here, focusing in on one object and letting the rest be discovered by the viewer. And when I found that face, what a discovery it was. Great job on it particularly.

=)

**blush** thanks so much.

This is one of those pieces that sort of made itself but strangely it has turned out to be one of my favorites. Maybe because it is quite different for me. thank you again!
