Re: Colorful Laughter

good pic. great colors!

oddly though, instead of enhancing the colors even more, which was my first intention, i ended up subdueing them a bit with this watercolor-like effect.

Re: Colorful Laughter

Steve and Craig, you have both given this thread nice additions. I like both approaches a lot.

Craig, yours is the first colored pencil sketch, which tones down the bright colors somewhat. I wondered if that approach would work with this picture. You have proven that it does so nicely.

Steve, yours is grainy and abstracted almost like you used a palette knife. I like that you left a lot of the details to the imagination. IMHO, that just adds to the fun, free aspect of the whole picture.
