I finally got started on July! Don't expect daily posts like this - I got lucky this weekend. My husband took over pretty much all of my tasks on Sunday which allowed me 4 uninterrupted hours of drawing! I should say, too, that each of these sheets takes me about 8 hours to pull together between the drawing, inking, coloring, and composition!!
First up, the themes for this month.
I'm working from the July prompts from @ellolovey ( Instagram and Facebook). This is the whole list if you'd like to follow along.
I try to read through the whole list before I select colors. For this month, I knew I wanted red, white, and blue for the 4th of July here in the US. I also needed green for watermelon and yellow for lemonade. So I settled on two blues, a green, a yellow, and a red, along with black & white.
I'm hoping to get another post up this week since I'm finally a tiny bit ahead!!
