More Color

Went to Urgent Care yesterday because I suspected that my 'flu' was really bronchitis.  I was right.  And I am happy to report that the 7 prescriptions (!) are beginning to work.  I still cannot think clearly, but I am able to at least sit up which is an improvement, since I've been mostly lying on the couch since Saturday.

I'm also happy to report that I can still tangle, even with my brain fog.  Here is today's project.  Mostly Zig markers over a watercolor wash.  With accents of Marvy white Reminisce pen, Prismacolor purple marker, Green perm opaque, and chalk.  I was also heavily influenced by a piece of Sonya Yencer's are that is sitting here waiting for our new book.

  1. While I'm sorry you are sick, I'm glad that you've got some meds to take care of it! Your piece came out great!

    1. Thanks. I am pleased with it. Something I found quite interesting was that when I put the hair spray on it to keep the pastels from rubbing off, the Prismacolor pen (the purple) got super intense. I thought it was going to bleed, but it just got darker. It made a nice focal point.

      This is the Zendala you painted at my house with my fancy paint powders.

    1. Frisky? I need better drugs for that. But I have been enjoying doing some art without over-analyzing everything. (I think know why some artists did drugs while painting...)

  5. Geez, I hope you get well soon! I guess it was a good thing to go to the urgent care.

    Your artwork turned out great. I like the colors and different pencils you used. The effect is great and the patterns you chose work really well together.
