The Summer of Colour Week 4 colour combination as voted for by us was charcoal grey and pale pink. I've voted on this colour combo since week one so I'm delighted it finally got selected!
|'A New York State of Mind' - watercolour and ink postcard.|
This week I've been listening to Billy Joel a lot and so I was in a New York State of Mind when it came to an idea for a Big Skies, Little Planet illustration - a little different from the normal countryside scenes I've been doing so far.
I also drew this New York scene as a wee gift for the funniest woman I've never met - Carol King who hails from New York and who's become a good virtual friend ever since we met on-line during the Sketchbook Project in 2010/2011. Carol kindly sent me a very New York house-warming gift when we moved earlier in the year and I wanted to send her a little something back. I'm hopeful that we'll meet up for real at some point if we ever make it back to New York for a holiday but in the meantime, I'll continue to laugh at her stories (whilst reading them with a broad New York accent in my head!)(Sorry to ruin the surprise if you happen by here before the postie happens by your apartment, Carol!
