Racing to catch the deadline for Summer of Colour week 4

Phew!  This has been the busiest week I can remember in a long time.  I really didn't think I would be able to fit in an entry for Summer of Colo(u)r this week, but managed to grab a couple of hours just now to have a little scribble....

<==== This week's colours are Apple Green & Pink with a splash of Dark Green

My mind went a complete blank on this combo .... all I knew was I wanted to use the funky little green fridge magnet frame that I had in my pile of "interesting frames to put something in"

So I sat down with some Posca pens in the right colours and quickly drew the first thing that came to mind:


I'm not sure what that says about me .....maybe just that I have been watching too much Hannibal!

I did cheat a teeny bit and use two different shades of the lighter green, just so that I could differentiate her face from her antler cowl - and I used my 'splash of dark green' to add shading

This little madam will be joining some other bits and bobs and going over to Gloucester soon for the big free art drop they have planned to coincide with the upcoming Paint Jam Festival

Well done, you managed to find time to join in! Super little portrait - my two teens watch Hannibal too (sometimes they try and get me to watch some but it's just too revolting for me, although Will is rather gorgeous!), so I understand the antler reference.

The funky frame is perfect too!

Not much longer 'til the big free art drop!
