How Are You Feeling?

I love color!  It can brighten up my day when I’m feeling a bit moody:

I started this mixed media piece by painting shapes on a 140 lb hot press paper with a cheap set of watercolors and Neocolor wax pastels.  I softened the wax pastels with a little water to brighten the shapes.  After it dried, I drew a face with a Zig writer pen:

Next, I started adding circles of color with my Prismacolor pencils:

I kept adding more color pencil and watched how the colors affected the mood of the drawing:

This was a really fun experiment!  I hope it brightens your day!
