Balanced in blues


Day 37. As summer has finally arrived in the UK the balancing cool blues refresh the eyes and the soul. It’s watercolor again today.

Day 38. A rummage through my box of ideas produced these photos of anonymous Victorian ladies, in the classically wistful pose of the age. Their eyes and details are enhanced with ink and graphite.

Day 39 More cool blues, a day tinged with sadness as I had to say a final goodbye to my long time furry friend, Woozle-cat. Which led to this outpouring of words.

Day 40. Oh how I love these colors! They lift my spirits and warm my soul!

Day 41 finishes this book, I’ll catch you up with this later on, and then we reach Book Three, which begins today!

cured with yellow


Remember the page with the tissue paper runnings? Well, yesterday it came round!

While I loved the patterns it made, the blue/grey/mauve colors just aren’t me. Yellow is the cure-all color, blending these hues to the green/orange warms shades I love. I used dilute Brusho ink in a spray bottle to brighten and warm the colors, and from there it was just a bit of collage, block printing and doodling away from complete!
