Colors and Textures, Oh My!

I was really attracted to the colors on the buildings in Oaxaca, Mexico.  I discovered interesting color combinations and found the colors did not have to match.

I did a loose interpretation of the buildings in collage, watercolor, color pencils and ink pen that I thought you might enjoy seeing:

And I loved the texture of this old door:

This one I did today with Neocolors, watercolor, color pencil and ink pen:

I hope you enjoyed my experiments.  I’d love to know what you think!

Have a color filled Friday!  🙂

  2. Hard to pick a favorite…I’m attracted by the geometry of the colors. The texture of the doors is really nice too. (K)

    • I like how you said that, Kerfe – I was also attracted to the geometry of colors. And so many different color combos! I wonder what their paint sample cards look like at the paint store….and what the paint is named! Mango yellow comes to mind! Lol! 😄🎨💕
