I made another drawing with my coloured markers. This may be a bit unusual medium, maybe even mainly associated with children drawings, but I find them very handy to work with. I found these markers that have a sharp point on one side for the details and a broad point on the other side for bigger areas. (Tiger Plastics)
Before I decide to paint something I find it easier to do a test with these markers, but sometimes the drawing turns out so well, I wonder whether I should even bother to paint it.

A drawing with only green and blue sounds a bit boring, but as I try to show here there are so many shades of the colours that it should not be boring at all. Not suprisingly maybe because these colours take up almost half of the colourwheel.

I love your cabbage slaw paintings.  The blues and greens look great.

Looks like a fun way to be artistic.

Thanks Bill. That's good to hear.

Well, I am not sure I already found my style.
I try to, but like everything else it goes with ups and downs.
But it feels I am coming closer towards it.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Dirk it is very reminiscent of the cabbage challenge painting and I can see why you enjoy doing them because they are like a puzzle, or so I found, when I did mine. It was very interesting for I was so engrossed and oblivious to everything going on around me.

You certainly do a great job with those markers. I've always found them a difficult medium, but maybe that's because I haven't practised with anything except kiddies' grade. Love your abstractions.
