Summer of Color Week 3



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!
