Colour, Glorious Colour


Colour is very important to me, I love bright strong colours, and when I find that I am using subdued colours or doing a lot of black and white work, I find I need to break out! This is what I have done this week for Sunday Sketches
The work I have being doing on the Alice series and some b & w illustrations for a children's book this week have left me hungering for colour. These days my breakouts are digital, I use my tablet and just let go.

It been really wet and cold this week so I thought I would bring in a bit of summer! You can imagine that they are at the beach can't you.

One thing I like with digital work is that you can create colours that don't get muddy, with paints when you mix paints it is ever so easy to get mud! Well I do. Perhaps that's why I like pastels, you seem to be able to get purer colours.

As colorful as a rainbow that appears after a storm. I realized I was seeing the brightness of the LORD's glory! Eze 1:28 CEV

    1. I generally use Photoshop, Corel Painter and a very old program called Deep Paint by Right Hemisphere, However these were done in Photoshop Elements 4!
      Thanks for all your lovely comments.

  10. These are so cool, especially the second one. I have no gift for digital illustration so I have great admiration for others who aren't intimidated by it. I like how the scrawls in different colors really have texture to the background.
