Here are the lines and colours left on my mind from the people I've met, and the places I've been, both online and off.

Blue and One Other Colour
That was the challenge, to use just shades of blue, with one other colour. I didn't think that white was a colour, but apparently it is. These half-faces were painted using Winsor Blue and Prussian Green, which is actually a shade of blue.
I paint people, places and things in watercolour, but I also use other media occasionally. In the few years that I worked as a freelance illustrator, I found pastels really useful to saturate my pictures for kiddies with colour. These days, however, it's mostly watercolour and sometimes charcoal that I use. Here are my paintings, a lot of them from art exchanges that I've been on, some of them from notebooks that I carry with me when I travel. I'm waiting to see what journey through art they will finally plot.
