Autumn Lane

"Autumn Lane 3-111207"

Can't leave it alone, got out the old palette knife
This image started out as a pointillistic piece in Tami's moleskine sketchbook (real ink on real paper).  Every time I play with it, I change it.  It is still supposed to be an example of saturation of color, and how desaturation makes things appear to retreat into the background.  However, this copy fails to reproduce the colors accurately.  And I can't fiddle with with it endlessly to get it perfect right now.

This is a digital version done on Artrage.  (The original, also by me, was pen and ink).

Fiddle no more, Mary. This is beautiful just as it is.
