Color Challenge #3: Peonies & Willow Tree

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome to the last Color Challenge of March! I apologize for the tardy post, I’m still recovering from my cold and it affected any motivation I had to draw the last few days. Rather than skip an upload, I buckled down and drew this in the morning and edited all afternoon to make it!

This week I went with a Compound Color scheme, i.e. two analogous colors and one complementary, to make sure I could get a few mixes from overlaying the markers. I just picked the first colors that fit this one condition, it just happened to be pastels! I drew up several thumbnails to work out the composition and transferred it with my Colerase Pencil. I rely a lot on the line work to make the contrasts, so I make sure use waterproof ink, particularly in the blocked in areas. I got tired when I was working with the willow tree so I refocused my energy by lining the peonies and the main figure (Lita).

Overall, I’m happy with this side series and I hope to continue it during April! I am not sorry for the one pun I snuck in, I love puns!
