This week’s color for Summer of Color is lime green and purple. It is a favorite combination for me.
This week I decided to use inktense pencils. I really love them, both as watercolors pencils and as ordinary pencils. For this lovely I used them both dry and wet, and I must say I like it as it gives more depth to the page.
The girl, I found in the pages of an old Cosmopolitan magazine. I like to use these models as they often have poses that we normally would not think of using. I usually change the face a bit so it is not recognizable. With this girl I loved her hair and the way her arm was raised. I had wanted to use that quote for ages, and felt she looked as if she could have said it.
Have a great week everybody and I can’t wait to check out all the different takes on this color combination. Thank you Kirstin for hosting this event, it is certainly lightening my winter up!
