Yesterday’s #inktober was a quick sketch on getting back from a lovely tea party.
…yesterday’s #colour_collective -the colour was ruby.
Today’s sketch was a quick one as I was sitting on the sofa and using pens and enjoying watching Beauty and the Beast…so I didn’t use a random colour, just the pens I had.
Today’s random colour was a lovely inky blue, I’d like to use it more often!
Today I sat outside my studio drawing in the sunshine…(I wasn’t wearing a hat but I accidentally drew the dog’s head too big so I put a hat on it to hide it!)
The random colour today was lemony yellow…
The random colour today was brown, I think I might use it more often now.
The random colour for today was orange…I got a bit distracted by the details in this one (echoing real life – it’s hard to focus surrounded by mess)!
I thought of choosing a list of themes for Inktober this year…but instead I decided to concentrate on experimenting with my palette.
I snipped some colours out of paint charts (mixing colours I wouldn’t usually use with a few favourites) and chose one this morning with my eyes closed.
It was pink and I was really tempted to put it back and start the random colour selecting tomorrow, as I’d envisaged this little scene in red – but I made myself stick with it and ended up enjoying it. (I allowed myself to choose green to go with it, which helped).
So here’s to a whole month of different colours!
