Oh my, you say so much with just a few lines and colors! Excellent use of white space.

i love simple line drawings like this because they're anything BUT simple. they take restraint and the knowledge of exactly where the lines need to go. beautiful.

Thanks to all of your for your time and comments.

md said...

really like this one a lot from the simplicity, to the thick to thin line contrasting colors and the connotation.

Bean Collins said...

I like that you implied the theme! Very bold colors, I like it very much.

zingtrial said...

Simple things are usually easier to explain and understand than complex ones. Simplicity is cosmic, because it places our life on the same scale as all life, of innocent Nature herself, who is all-powerful.Wishing you well

Deep illustration yet illustrated simplistically. Exquisite.

Wow this is so beautiful! My favorite of yours!!

studio lolo said...

Wow GZ...your style is changing a bit! Perhaps the time off took you in a different direction? I too, love the restraint and simplicity of this piece. The thick line in the foreground is a stroke of brilliance!
And I'm left to wonder, what type of elixer?
