Self & Passion
Then I inverted the background and everything changed.
I tried the drawing four different ways: solid colors and gradients on white, then on black. I found that the solid colors worked best on a white background, but the gradients worked best on black. The version that most pleased me is the one I've featured. Blissfully, it captures every single change that I made to the original, while the solid colored version most resembles my original vision.
I've never had so much trouble choosing my favorite from amongst the work-in-progress variations. When I revisit this drawing again someday, I expect that my preference will change.
