The Summer of Color event has blinked by brightly. The last challenge is Watermelon Ice, a red fruit flavor with black chocolate chip "seeds." I am proud to have officially completed a piece each week, six weeks in a row. That is a new record for me. Sticking with the flower series helped to motivate me. As did all of your great comments, thanks for the support. I'm considering listing my art card garden on eBay, so email me at underwater at aquariann dot com if you're interested in plucking up an original first. $50 includes the shipping and a protective sports card sleeve.
This week I used a Gerbera daisy picture as a reference. Daisy art is drawn entirely with Prismacolor pencils. I used Blush Pink, Carmine Red, Scarlet Lake and Black Cherry pencils to color the flower. The background swirls are colored with White, Warm Grey 30%, Warm Grey 50% and Black pencils. Drawing is on Strathmore Bristol Vellum Paper, hand cut to approximately 3.5" by 2.5", ACEO size.
I've also linked up my colored pencil art and recommend visiting the following hops for more creative works: Sunday Sketches, Magical Monday, Whimsy Wednesday, Thursday Favorite Things and Paint Party Friday.
