I’ve been tweaking this artwork for a few days. I liked its drawing-like, graphic feeling and overall black and white simplicity. Yet, it seemed almost too quiet for a “Nolan.” I fiddled with the image a bit in a graphics program on line, and printed the basic image. Then took felt tip pens in hand and experimented with some color for pop. As soon as I drew in an orange tie, the “ah ha” moment arrived. I grabbed my brush and added the tie into the painting. It provides a feeling of movement and lightness and even light-heartedness that lifts the image into another plane, I think.
