Red for IF (A corner of a past...)

When I read that the topic for the week is red,
I immediately thought of sharing this very rough sketch that was posted a few posts ago....
I love red, not just any red, but old dark red....,
on anything except on myself (I'm always in black!)...
so red is almost always visible/prominent in my illustrations/paintings....
I'd love to illustrate/paint a new one for this topic
but I don't think I'll have much time to do so this weekend....
(brown charcoal and Photoshop)

This illo does have a very archaic, even sentimental feel! I love the combination of the two major colors.

I can't imagine you always wear black. You are someone whom I would describe with different colors...

Let me think about the six weird things about myself. Oh, an idea just occurred to me:-)...
