ANGELA TREAT LYON original contemporary painting & sculpture



I don't think I have to explain what a black and white drawing is. But the way I do them is a bit different. I like a very smooth surface when I use pen and inks, so I draw on a 3/8th inch archival foam core board.

The line I can achieve can vary drastically from almost non-visible thin to fat and juicy. But since I have a pretty heavy hand, the thin lines don't come in as often.

This particular series came at me at about 3 in the morning. I lay there trying to not open my eyes, but they would have none of it.

By 4, I was downstairs drawing. There were about eight or ten in the series, so I was not done till that night.

As you might have noticed, some of these designs appear elsewhere on this site in color: the colorization of these images happened about five years after these originals.

I was going through some of my old files and found these images. I liked them so much I decided to put color to them using gouache paint. Six of those got produced by Amber Lotus Publishing as greeting cards.

There will be more....
