This weeks colors wasn't hard at all.One could always paint some flowers, pink and green and a touch of dark green. But, I spent some time thinking of it and found a better idea.
I didn't use too much pink but it's there and I'm pretty pleased with my result. I felt I needed some warmth in my piece, hence the sunflower. It is actually apple green I've used, but it turned out to look like blue in the photos. Don't know what happened. The pink and green gave a beautiful bluish grey, which I've used on the head and feet.
The paper used is handmade, not me, and I dare say it's of a poor quality. Watercolors needs a stabile paper, but this is very absorbant in some spots and not at all in other spots. With that said, I love the look and feel of this paper, it's kind of rustic, which I love.
The paper is tinted, light brown or sepia is perhaps more correct to say. That made my colors a bit different than I had planned, but I think it works after all.
You know the feeling when in the flow and just creating. One is so occupied that everything else is out of mind. I had that good feeling when making this piece, and couldn't do anything but laugh when I saw what I had done. What excactly is it I have made here? Is it a bug or a fly? It's armed and with wings. Oh well, doesn't matter I'm happy with it anyway.
I've used Twinkling H2O's and watercolor pencils to make this. Some shading is done with an ordinary HB pencil and blending stump.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my post last week, it warms my heart. I'm not sure I got to visit everyone else, but will try this week.
I hope you're enjoying your days.
