inspiration monday


i recently finished taking an online color class with master calligrapher and color expert teri martin.  she warned us when we began that we would probably get addicted to painting these color wheels, and boy was she ever right......i can't seem to stop myself, and i've started to accumulate quite a stack of them!



but the really great part is that after you've mixed all of that luscious color, you get to do something fun with it......like something a little 
yellow-green and blue-violet doodle kind of fun!!

wishing you a colorful day filled with inspiration!!

this doodle art was inspired by the colors aureolin yellow, 
quinacridone violet, and ultramarine violet. 
  other supplies:  micron pens, 2B pencil, and fabriano medioevalis paper
