This assignment involved using one column of the grid I made with Inktense Watercolor Pencils (see previous post). I let my grandson, DJ, pick out the column for me. The colors were red, orange, mustard, bark(brown) and iris blue. Not exactly the colors I would have chosen, but, hey, it's good to experiment.
I made my own greens with the combo of mustard and blue, I mixed blue, red and mustard with the brown to create different shades for the buildings. I suppose I could have chosen another column but this was a great challenge.
I even put in a little advertising for this year's Summer Reading Program at the library- Dream Big Read.
I haven't done this much drawing since I was in grade school. This is good for me.
