Colorized Drawing

The designs and artwork in Peru opened up interesting new possibilities for drawing. I like the geometric aspects and so played around with them in this scene. The sky, storms, the stars, sun, and moon are joined by floating massive blocks. The human figure stand in awe.

The drawing was scanned and opened in Photoshop Elements. There I added colors. It was easy to try out different color combinations and effects, undo them, and try others at will. The proportions of the image were selected to make it fit as my header image in facebook.
