Summer of Color - Week Five

I'm posting on time, I'm posting on time! Eeeeh oh me daddyo, I'm posting on time!

*Ahem!*

The second to last week of the Summer of Color brought us the colour combo Red, Royal Blue & a smudge, splash or pop of Light Blue.

Do not ask me where this little fella emerged from in my subconscious... because I couldn't tell you. I have struggled mightily with the colours this week. This is the result of sitting down, flipping my sketchbook open to a page, grabbing something, anything, and just drawing.

The pages in my sketchbook were pre-gessoed and had the remnants of where I had cleaned stencils off a while ago. You can see kind of what it looked like in this picture on the opposite page.

  14. haha you never cease to amaze me Carmen! If I just sat down and tried to draw something you would either end up with a blank page or scribble where I get frustrated *hangs head in shame*

    I love him though, he looks like he should be creepy but I kind of like him :-)
