  • Green Goddess

    I started today by painting a couple of backgrounds using derwent watercolour pencils, a blue one and a yellow/green one. While I was waiting for them to dry I felt prompted to draw a female face on the yellow/green background. So here she is – my Green Goddess!

    Green Goddess - AEDM, Day 6

    I drew her face in pencil, outlined it using a uniball eye pen, and coloured it using neocolour crayons, leaving quite a lot of the background colours still showing through. Lastly I darkened the background using distress ink pads.

    I have no idea where her face came from, but I’m quite pleased with the finished result.

    I really like the strength in her expression. And her green hair. 🙂

    Thanks Molly – she does look very determined doesn’t she! I normally do plain hair, but for some reason green just seemed like the right colour for her – glad you like it 🙂

    I posted about my love for water soluble crayons the other day. I also love a limited palette such as they one you are using on your gorgeous green goddess, and combining lines and water. I love this image. I hope you will visit me ..http://tobikibelpiatek.blogspot.com/2012/11/c-is-for-crazy-for-caran-dache-crayons.html

    Thank you for visiting Tobi. I love the versatility of water soluble crayons and use them in all kinds of ways! I normally like to work in bright colours, so this piece was novel for me, but I enjoyed the change 🙂

    I do like how you picked up the green in the colours in the face… it makes it all very cohesive… great image…xx
