Variations in Purple
I definitely love the colour purple. In this drawing I used three markers with three different shades of this colour, and I also used magenta and violet with coloured pencils.
For me purple means energy and an intensive joy of life. There are so many purple flowers (although I think that there are no purple roses) in summer. When I did the drawing I again had no special flower in mind – however I would be happy to learn that it has some similarity to an existing one.
This time I used pastel paper – I had some left and wanted to know how it would react to the markers. I noticed a bit of bleeding here and there (thanks to photoshop you don’t see it anymore) but otherwise there was no problem. I am thinking about trying markers on some scraps of some smoother watercolour paper and then experiment with coloured pencils on top of them.
