I've been in a drawing rut lately. But the Summer of Color challenge started this week so I dug deep. I hope to grow a new piece to share each week, so instead of sketching, inking and then coloring, I'm trying something new - and only using colored pencils. That means no erasing and no fretting that the image isn't perfect. I'm just going to let the colors flow.
For the 6-week event, I'll be practicing drawing flowers to incorporate into my fairy artworks. This year the inspirations are based on ice cream flavors. The first color scheme is "Rainbow Sherbet," a bold combination of pinks, oranges and a touch of white. I drew an orange tiger lily. I was envisioning the piece with a white and pink background, but as you can see by the deep blue, color happens.
Tiger lily drawing is colored with Prismacolor pencils onto ACEO sized Strathmore Vellum Bristol Paper.
Stroll over to Sunday Sketches to see more art by creative souls.
