Getting Dark in the Yard


                                                                    ...bink to explore.
 Darker, grittier...more junkyardish. Broken glass, busted metal, rusty junk. Complementary darks, saved whites...watercolour playing under the conductors guidance. A sense of mystery, the unknowable, the fun of arbitrary colour...a set piece somehow alive with flapping decay...

Wow ... I binked, and it IS darker and grittier!! Love it, Ron.

Thanks, Kathryn, I think its also a more balanced composition...these sketches take a while to evolve...

Love the darker look! The way the left bottom corner is left ambiguous, I really love. My brain is making it a dark river that the cars will eventually be absorbed by!

Thanks, Pat, they will be sucked into the vortex...or recycled.
