|A couple of Limeys - Jez|
Pitt pen, coloured pencils and digital framing
The Three Muses this week asked us to create something using Turquoise and Lime Green. I asked myself what I could paint with Lime Green, and the answer was obvious - Limes. I even found that I had pencils labelled Lime Green and Turquoise in one of my many sets of coloured pencils, so it was meant to be.
When I was younger English people were often referred to as "Limeys", mostly by Australians and Americans. This seems to have died out in favour of other nicknames. The name Limeys was derived from the fact that from the 1800s the British Navy issued lime juice to their sailors to help prevent Scurvy, which is a rather nasty illness caused by lack of Vitamin C.

I love a Challenge and I am doing the 100happyday challenge at the moment. I also am struck by how many different ways this can be interpreted. I love lime green and used to wear it a lot but it doesn't suit me as it used so it is nice to see it just on paper. It makes my mouth water and I guess my brain is speaking to the lime. Enough double Dutch now. I hope you are well and I just wanted to say how warmed I felt by your comment on how to create different drawing styles! Happy Paper Saturdays. ManonXxReplyDelete

I agree with you - we who play with colour and paint are so lucky.
