Blue # 3

This one is 11 x 14" so a bit smaller than the other 2. I'm going to take a little break from the blue backgrounds on the next one. Partially because I am low on blue pencils again! Then there's the conspiracy that two galleries around here are having color themed shows: "Red" and the other "Green." Don't they know I'm doing my "Blue" period?

Don't they know it's Red, Blue and YELLOW ?! Sniff!

We need to buy you a jumbo blue pencil for these wonderful works.

I like the complementary colors in this one!

I like how the front is a round edge. Kinda makes the work flow off the work space.

I always like the reds in your work.

Nicole, did you use watercolor or the crayons to do an underpainting first, or did you layer with dry colored pencil?
Beautiful, love your work!
