Sunshine and Lavender

Between completing my Star Wars illustration challenge and participating in Drawlloween, it took until mid-November for me to find the time and motivation to experiment with the supplies in my October Art Snacks box.  Even when I did break them out, I kept things very small and manageable.  This illustration is the scale of a bookmark.  Indeed, I have a number of these skinny drawings now and I think I am going to laminate them so they can all become bookmarks.

I think this drawing ended up with a bit of a 1910s vibe to it.  The combination of the lavender paint pen, which I watered down as well as using straight out of the barrel, and the bright sunshine yellow of the ink brush is quite a pleasing colour combination I think.

    • Thanks. I have gradually built up a collection of them without realising I was even making bookmarks. Just lots of experiments on narrow samples of paper. Now I will create them while thinking of them as future bookmarks.
