All week long I’ve been championing “endless summer,” my act of defiance against the onslaught of fall things being hurled my way.
Noooo, pumpkin spice!
Turns out resistance is futile. What started out being an innocent sketch this morning on my iPad turned into a definitive fall color palette.
How did this happen? I wish I could say it was a conscious decision, but that would be a lie. My brain has totally been sucked into the zeitgeist, and by the time I realized I was skewing fall, it was too late to go back. So I went full-tilt burnt sienna on this one.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might recall that my daughter and I painted a similar fashion portrait in the spring, using Sharpie and watercolor.
So in love with this one, I already framed it! I drew with Sharpie, then Alexa painted it perfectly, as only a 6-year-old with no preconceived notions could. She wanted rosy-red cheeks, so she made them the shape of flowers. I had her sign her name on the back along with mine. I see a future of us as mother-daughter artists! ☺️ 27/100 #the100dayproject #goldpixeldraw
I do actually enjoy that this one is a different color palette, and I had to pry myself away from “fixing” little mistakes. Because what’s the point of painting (even digitally) if you’re going to be a joy-kill about it?
I tried several brushes to make sure I was getting the texture I wanted. Procreate comes with lots of great brushes already, but it’s worth it to do a search on Creative Market to find custom brushes. Check out my Design Resources page for more good brush sources.
