"Oh, What a night!..."

"Oh, what a night.
You know, I didn't even know her name,
But I was never gonna be the same.
What a lady. What a night."
-Frankie Valli

This is amazing. I thought it might be scratch board, but I see you used colored pencil....did you do the black with the computer. Really beautiful!!

I'm loving your travel pages too!

These inverted colors are always so interesting and beautiful. Your work is well suited to this technique. Always a fun visit when I come here.

Thanks pedalpower and deborah...:)The original was drawn with colored pencil and Pitt pen. I posted it (the original) back a couple of months ago...this post today was done "magically" taking that original and flipping it into "negative" by using Microsoft editor...:)
