Pink Cloud Assembly

Pink Cloud Assembly

This piece began as an experiment and evolved into a multi-part birthday gift. I used colored pencil primarily, and I found that the wood was unbelievably forgiving with a piece of sandpaper in hand. Gradients and gentle hues were accomplished by laying down color and then sanding some of it off, repeat, et cetera. I love how one can see the grain of the wood through parts of the artwork.

The piece is named after a song of the same name by the deceased Japanese artist Hide.
