Ideas and experiments

A quick colour study while watching a mountain stage in the Nike race Vuelta de Burges. Bike races make great company while doing tedious stuff for my dayjob 🙂

So a sunburned mountain in grey/brown neutrals with small vegetation in muted green. The eye-catching thing here was the fuchsia flowers scattered all around the harsh mountain. Little snippets of hope.
Left my desk and did a few dabs with my Polychromos pencils.

  • Peacock feeling
  • Bark
  • The harsness of life

Later I tried the same combo with Inktense and water, but this gave a much too warm feeling, so will look for other muted pens.
