Color Love # 5....

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.

Thanks for stopping by to visit. Come again.

These look very interesting and it is wonderful that it makes you go beyond your comfort zone. It is good to experiment! You are awesome and I still think you should have been an Art teacher. Your little sister, Alison.
