drawing and photoshop fun

I just love making illustrations and mixed-media and sitting for hours in front of my computer, fiddling around and having fun. The illustration itself took only 15 minutes, the fiddling around nearly 3 hours.
At the moment my favorite colors are turquoise and pink, maybe because it's spring and the colors around me are still soft and gentle.
A few years ago i never would have favorited pink, it being much too girly and sweet, but in combination with green the sugary feel to pink is minimized.
As with every artist, i notice that my tastes and style evolve over the time. Things that a few years ago would be unthinkable are now my favorite medium, for example collage. Collage can be so sublte, full of texture, meaning, it's become like an addiction.


  1. She's very pretty, Barbara, especially if you look at the close-up in Zazzle!

    I've found too, that using a different medium encourages me to use colours that I never would normally think of using! I don't know why that happens but I think it's all to the good!

  2. Thanks, Judy! i've noticed that the older I get, the younger and "cuter" the girls in my illustrations get :-)
