Daffodils on Mustard Paper


I really like the way the yellow of the Prismacolor pencils looks on this mustard paper. The scan is more yellow than the mustard paper in real life, and the vase is a bit kerwonky, but I like the looseness of this sketch on colored paper.

Kerwonky!? I think it's lovely... the whole thing. And I'm writing that word down so I can start using it. :-)

Wow! What a neat idea to use coloured paper. I have some Mi-Teints paper around here that I bought to use with my pastel pencils... might have to dig those out! Lovely drawings... made me hungry for some fruit!

Hi Lin, Love the daffodils, lovely to see them as we are in such a different time line and season. Liked your lips and your stuff on the coloured paper too, must try that.

Wow, Lin, I would never even thought of putting yellow on mustard paper. The effect is wonderful.

I like your sketches on the different colors, and now I really have to try it!!
