"Seeds, Sprouts..."

...Stems and Swirls...drawn "ink straight in"...
lead free,
classic in black and white.
Now..."to color?"...or..."not to color?"...
That is the question! :)
Any thoughts?

Color is an act of reason. "

it looks fabulous in black and white but I do always admire your colour techniques. I'm sure it would look even better with your zingy colours Peg.

Definitely give it color. It will bring these blooms to life. The stage is set, let the color curtain rise.

Yes, yes, color! It is beautiful in black and white, but I love the way you put on the icing.

Beautiful, but it is calling for color I think. Color!

It's lovely! I really like the different patterns and designs in it. You just get better and better at doing these! nancy p.s., I agree, color would be stunning!

looks nice, but I do love your colours.

How about making a copy and colouring it so that you have both and we can enjoy both? Your work has enriched and deepened since i last saw it.

When I first looked at it I thought it was not yours because there was no color. Definitely color it.

Colour is your style. It denotes who you are as an artist. Good suggestion about colouring a copy first though.

Just love this, but I think I'll love it even more with your unique colour touches added.

copy it first and then color then you will have both. Personally I prefer color because I love color! And yours are always fab!

Let's see what you decide..............

I like it. Sometimes black and white is relaxing even for people who love color everywhere. We all need a break or a bit of change.

I really like the quote. For me it's so true. I do my sketch and then add color to tidy it up and make it better so it's definitely more thinking involved.

Who says you have to choose?! I would make a nice photocopy on nice paper and color it. Then, if you don't like it, you still have the original in b&w. Or, you could copy it several times, coloring it in different variations.
