The challenge for the first week of Summer of Colour is to use Citron Green and Turquoise. While I'm quite happy with my painting, I am very disappointed with the colour reproduction from my scanner.
I usually like to take a photograph because false colours reproduction is a fault with my scanner, but today it has poured with rain all day from dark grey skies and there was no hope of taking a photo. So I hope you will accept the colours here which were, on my painting, fairly close to the Citron Green and Turquoise (particularly as I used Pthalo Turquoise paint).
I never think of saying that whatever I post on my blog is all my own work - as this is - but it will always be my own inspiration and my own work unless I state a source, or unless it's from a very old book for vintage images.
For this initial drawing I deliberately chose to add a lot more 'hair' at the back of the head so that I could make a decision when it was finished about where to crop the image. Actually, I like this stage best, because I like the clarity of drawings as against completed paintings.
If you like the idea of seeing many other bloggers' paintings with Citron Green and Turquoise, pop over to the Summer of Colour blog.
