Fab Clive, I meant to say earlier that I love that peacock green of the sash, I’m now on the hunt for fabric in that colour to make myself something gorgeous for a wedding I’m attending!
Good colouring for you!
My Sir Gawain has arrived and I am getting myself settled down to enjoy it Clive. I think I shall hold the image of your knight in my head as I read it. He has a sensitive far away look to him. Definitely chivalrous and true to character.
I’m pleased that my work on this has carried you back to the poem. Job done! (-;
Each of the colours really sing out in the most glorious way, then I focus back on the expression on Gawain’s face and It’s so delicate and moving – something’s happening to him here, he’s changing – I find this Gawain rewards a long look, it’s wonderful Clive
Thank you Phil. When I started this I’d intended it to be a fairly straight forward representation. But you’re right, there is something delicate and enigmatic about the young knight’s face. There is change afoot, and it’s carried the work in a direction I hadn’t expected.
Lovely Gawain. I like the way you and nature are so profuse in your various greens…
There was a time when I avoided greens like the plague. Just couldn’t make them work for me. Luckily I persisted and found ways through the problem. Couldn’t do without green now!
FABULOUS!!! will you be making a risograph of this photo?
No. Thaliad was the experiment, to see whether the artwork could be taken apart in order to produce a workable print. However the next experiment will be to separate the colours myself, and this will require some nifty work with a computer programme. For that I’ll need to create an image specially, and to use a more limited palette.
