8/11/07 Sunset Mood Drawing

Originally uploaded by moore850.

This very simplified composition is a mixed media study (colored pencil, ink) of a sky at sunset. I am experimenting with how far I can reduce a composition before it becomes boring. In this case, with an interesting and realistic-enough sunset background, the black lines become very important. However, if the sunset colors are plain and childlike, the composition reduces itself to a very forgettable minimalist hack. The trick is to have an element that anyone could tell is complicated, i.e. the complex background.
