This is so very simple, yet beautiful. So many smooth curves and subtle nuances, not to mention those swirls. Something about this makes me think of the stylized elements that Tim Burton uses in so many of his films, which may seem like a strange connection now that Inktober has come to an end, but nevertheless...there it is. It's a very stark kind of beauty, which makes sense since the subject is a dry flower.
The addition of tiny dots here and there somehow gives the image a rather organic quality to me. While this is your artistic interpretation of the flower's essence, I have no trouble at all picturing it in a more corporeal way, not to mention as it once was when it was still flourishing, within my mind's eye. Again, this is so incredibly simple and minimalist, yet there is much to see and imagine within the fluid strokes and points.
Thank you very much, Chrononomad! You do me great honor. I'm so glad you like this drawing!
Tim Burton...I think I see what you mean. What high praise! I like his work but haven't watched his movies overmuch. Makes me want to have another look at some of my faves of his.
I feel the same way about the dots. I love bringing things down to their simplest form without making them feel fake. I like to leave the breath in them. That sign of life and love. So they can give it to whoever looks at them.
