Into Threshold's Deeper Dawns by PenelopeSalt Into Threshold's Deeper Dawns by PenelopeSalt
:star:_:star:_:star:_:star:_:star:

In celebration of my 500th view, I offer you this piece. It's done purely and solely in markers - yes, markers - on bristol board, freehand (and fancy-free). I'm in love with the floating shadows and the interaction of the colors.

A detail shot of the marker lines, et cetera, is here: [link]

Thanks ONE AND ALL for your great encouragement,
all your comments and faves,
and your watching eyes that hold me to higher standards!

A toast of champagne, and pancake love for everyone!:iconpancakeglompplz:

I LOVE art.
I breathe it each day.
I see it in places other's
merely glance at.
Every sense has the ability
to become art.
So here I am looking at your
interpretation of ART.
I can see in every stroke and
colour the very essence of your
soul.
Every now and then a masterpiece
comes forth and gives me a tug
at my heart and this is one of
them my friend.
Just inspirational work....:iconhrtplz:

Wow! Breath taking... This is amazing.
I love the colours of light and shadow, love the technique, and the face, not only it is beautiful, but also a face of a good man.

And all done by markers!

Markers... woah...
The colours are just amazing, and what lovely eyes and expression. Make you wonder what she's thinking.

Wow...

I'm glad the expression somehow fights through that stupefying movement of color. (I was afraid I'd sort of dropped the ball fighting with those markers...they kept dying on me...errrr...) Thanks for the feedback, always appreciated.

It's the combination of the 'stupefying movement of colour' and the expression that makes it such an intriguing piece. Love it!
You're welcome!

Thank you! I really appreciate it when people take the time to figure out the Whats and Whys of their "Awesomes" (not that I don't appreciate the Awesomes, too, but)... Anyway. You're the bomb.

Very colorful.
Suprised to hear it's with markers :heart:
Looked like pencil or chalk!

Cool! Oh, it would've been easier with pencils; I could've been ever so ginger, tentative, judicious--but then it would look nothing like this beautiful riot of ink! Markers force me to be bold. Daring! :D

Markers do tend to put more oomph in the picture.
