Colors of Spring 2017

Here I am working with some of my fancy new colored pencils, the Irojiten and the soft artistic colors of the art-famous Prismacolor line. I now have many ways to depict the sky, and I love doing sky sketches. Most of my sky images are from memory because the clouds change moment to moment. You might say I have lots of cloud memory storage. I also have a good memory for colors and I wanted to note down the golden green of fresh new leaves sprouting. This only lasts a few days as the leaves mature quickly. I have pencils titled "May Green," "Spring Green," and "Chartreuse Green." The empty area to the left is where journal text was written.
