Going Into The Unknown

Day 25 - 30-30 Challenge, for the moment this piece is titled "Pear" it is a Black and White ink on paper work. I was challenging myself with this piece, trying to see if I could make the textures on the pear work in this technique. Experimenting with the background, using the poor mans airbrush, a toothbrush. The technique is called fly speckling, creating soft little dots, adding more to make it darker in areas. It was not working as well as I had hoped, Taking a paint brush in hand making new marks and patterns, it started to come together. The addition of white gel markers back into the pear to bring out more texture and light.

For now the pear stands alone, there will always be more experimenting.
