Sage and Sepia

Week Six of Summer of Color 2013 - the last one and I'm really really late but I think I can still link up over at Twinkle Twinkle



This time the lovely Kristin challenged us with Sage and Sepia. I had no idea what I was going to do when I sat down at my desk, other than another page in my fledgling art journal. I dug out some coloured pencils I've had for years and years and started scribbling. This is what came out - another mournful self portrait :o( oh dear!



This always seems to happen when I'm working with a colour combination which I find especially difficult, not sure why, very odd - like the week we had Pale Pink and Charcoal Grey and this sad little me emerged


... obviously several decades younger!!!

I'm much happier working with the brighter, more vibrant colours. Here are the other 4 weeks' pages ...





It's been a brilliant six weeks for me and the best thing is that I've finally started my art journal and realised that it doesn't have to be perfect or a work of art, I just have to wade and play, experiment, learn and most of all have fun!!!
Thanks Kristin - see you for Summer of Color 2014 :o)xxx
