Sunday Sketches: Escape

Here's this week's image for Sunday Sketches, hosted by Blue Chair Diary.


It's called: Escape.

I imagined leaving the cookie-cutter, same old, day-in-day-out for just a little ride out above it all. Maybe I'll run into some like-minded folks taking another balloon ride?

This was my first, quick attempt at watercolor. I like the richness of the colors, but my little set only has 6 basic colors, so the skin on my sketched person looks funny.

Also, I need to get a new scanner. Sigh... in time!

  9. Love the whimsical escape.... but if we couldn't really just grab a balloon and up, up, and away, for a momentary escape from it all.

  12. Nice job for a first attempt and only 6 colors. Just remember though that every color known to man is derivative of those 6...so mix them up and you will be amazed at how many you actually have at your disposal.
