Nothing like having one's head in the clouds..or so it seems! I really like the whole look of this, and I like how you've created the folds in his clothing. Well done!

Thanks Carla. I've been adding clouds around the head in a lot of different pictures now...Some sort of obsession of mine. I did try to do this one with more of a painterly effect by changing the line work from black to colour and using a lot of soft brush work for tonal variations instead of crosshatching. Sometimes I get so used to working for B&W that I forget I don't have to use the black line or crosshatching with full colour. I would like to try a simular effect by printing out a line drawing at 50% transparency and then watercolour or ink the rest like a painting so to speak. I think it might be a cool effect...

Yeah i know, not so much a trip, but a self imposed break. I've had two people tell me in the past few days I'm too intense and nead to have a break. So yeah I agree...No more thinking about art projects for the next couple of week, it might be hard!
