Summer of Color - Week Three

Continuing on with my Catch Up of Summer of Color, I've got Week Three for y'all today! 

"All the other colors are just colors, but purple seems to have a soul - when you look at it, 
it's looking back at you."
- Uniek Swain

This week's color palette:
Purple + Purple + Yellow

Color Inspiration: Caran D'Ache Neocolor II in Golden Yellow, Violet, & Derwent Inktense Pencils inViolet (#0800)

I sketched this girl about three months ago and I've just now gotten around to getting her all painted and pretty.  I'm not really keen on the flower border but I love how her face turned out!

I used my Neocolor II's for face and hair and used my Inktense Pencil in Violet to pull color off the pencil with a wet brush to get all of that wonderful delicate purple shading around her eyes and cheeks.  I used a spouncer with Dylusions Paint in Lemon Zest and Crushed Grape for the stenciling.  The yellow dots I love, the purple flowers... not so much.  Oh well.  Live and learn I guess.

I actually took Week One, Three, & Four sketches to work with me and completed the majority of each there.  I love the portability of the Neocolor and Inktense pencils.  Yes, the tins are not small but all I needed was those two things, a couple of different sized brushes, and a cup of water.  It made it a whole lot easier to devote all of that time to creating lovely ladies where I would have been making a massive mess had I been using acrylics.

Join me on Thursday for the last of my "Girls Series"!

Until then,
