I like this one.

Thanks for letting me know, Dave, glad you like it!

Funnily enough this one makes me feel that they are apart from the crowd, and apart from each other. Again an underlying disturbance. I do like these Veils images.

I really like both of these 'The Crowd' pictures.

Omega, maybe that is because I don't like crowds? Interesting observation, thanks.

Dem, thanks for dropping by, glad you like them!

Yes, this one is very effective. Interesting how the figure in the centre looks ghostly.

Hi Mark! Thanks! Great to have you visit here.

The figures do seem to be isolated from each other as well as from whatever they are looking at. Maybe a meditation on loneliness in the midst of crowds. I like the way this series is developing.

Natalie, I like "meditation on loneliness", thank you!

Actually this piece is one of the earliest in the series of monotypes that I did way back around 1989. I've been uploading my works going backwards in time, more or less. If you look at the top left under "Print Series", you get a hint as to when they were done.
