Big Blue Bird
The new meds seem to be working. Hands don't hurt anymore, still numb, but at least the pain is gone and I can draw again. :)
Forgive the bad photo. Way too dark outside and the light in the room is not the best. I don't know how I am going to get a good scan of this. The image is on paper that is 19.5 inches by 13 inches. Hopefully I can get a good photo outside or paste the picture scans together in Photoshop. Or if it turns out really well, go get it scanned professionally, if it isn't that much money.
I really like how bright the blue looks on the black paper, it really stands out. The reds that are going to be added should stand out even more. Even though I don't like using reds that often due to the fading factor, with something like this, where it would just look strange not to use, I have too. If I get it framed I have to remember to get UV glass and keep it out of direct light as much as possible. I have art thats over 10 years old that hasn't faded but I think that is because I never used any reds or purples, or could be because of the UV glass. Sometimes worth spending the extra money on the special glass though.
*edit* If I can find some oranges that are pretty close to red that would work. The Derwent Coloursofts have a high rated for lightfastness orange that looks red and a rose, and since this is done completely in Coloursofts that would work. Only problem is I think I would need to buy the whole set of 72 to get it. :( And that isn't happening right now.
