A summer of color

When I saw the prompt for the hottest color event of the season,  'Citron Green & Turquoise' I wanted to participate and set about sketching and adding color.

 I drew this turbaned man holding on to a stick and felt he was saying 'Be bold' so that's what I let him say. 

After the second drawing was done, as I was gazing out through the window at the heavy monsoon rain pouring continuously, turning the whole world absolutely green, I knew the words had to be 'dance in the rain'!  







 And the dancer,









 The SOC is all about creativity, community and connections, so do check it out and join in the fun. It is my first time and I am hoping to enjoy all the color prompts.

  4. Your remarkable characters look like as they are directly coming out of a mysical fairytale. I am sure they know some topsecret secrets. The colors match perfectly with the characters!
