Paint Party Friday and a quick at work sketch...

Okay so I am at work and I see this lady (older) waiting at the bus stop...it is 95 and she is in her cultural clothing...I am soooooooooooo respectful of that...my mind starts to wonder...a young girl with all the world to see...what is she thinking.............

what is she thinking???
wow, what color would you have used for the yellow???  I have color combo and depth issues....I was at work so my supplies were limited.... watercolor pencils and crayons...I used q-tips instead of paint brushes... happy paint party friday...thank  you Kristin and Eva for hosting...can't wait to hop around this weekend.

cheers, dana

It really looks great for using improvised tools.

Looks wonderful...depending on the depth of colors you could use lavender to add contrast or stick with warm pinks and pale oranges.

Love the patterns here and I'm actually ok with the use of yellow- it makes her eyes really POP!
Happy PPF,
Stephanie

Love the mystery in her eyes.

SHERI C said...

Amazing how when we cover the face the eyes take on so much more! Love your work this week. HAPPY PPF!

Helen said...

I agree, the mystery in her eyes is..well...intriguing. Happy PPF x

Gloria said...

She really came out great. 95 degree and of course when we see these women wearing their cultural dress we wonder how in the world can they put up with the heat. I suppose they are so used to it, they just don't think about it. On the other hand this girl seems to be looking at something that caught her eye and she is wishing for that too. Great work.

Terrific colours and loving your sketch. Happy PPF, Annette x

Kristin Dudish said...

I think it is fantastic that you were so inspired that you didn't wait for brushes! Who needs 'em when you get such beautiful results with q-tips?!? So, so cool!

(I actually think that the yellow is a nice contrast to the blue... and the way you've added a hint of it to the background really ties everything together :) )

EVA said...

Very, very pretty. I think the colours work well!

Detroit RED WINGS have a purple octopus as their mascot??? Really? Why I wonder? Totally incongrous. Shouldn't red wings have a bird as a mascot?

Thanks for your comment!

Jenn said...

I love that you used watercolor and crayons! I really like the use of color - especially those purple eyes!! Gorgeous!

Sinderella Studio Designs said...

Eva, yes, purple octopus...for decades when the wings are in the playoffs people have thrown octopus on the ice when the wings score...slimy creepy I know...but it is what it is! TRADITION!!!

I think the yellow works well with the blue. Sometimes I use Q-tips with the crayons even when I am at home and have brushes. :) They work great for some things!

I love yellow and blue together, I think it's a perfect combo.

:) Me and yellow, we aren't friends - But. It compliments the violet so well, that even i would have used it.

Pretty violet eyes.

Also. I think cultural clothing is intriguing.
