Summer of Color - Week 5

The colors chosen by 
are
Red
Royal Blue
and a
Smudge, Splash or Pop of
Light Blue.

No flowers from me this week!


This double page spread is in my
little Moleskine.
The background is a Gelli print
and I drew my sad girl on top.
Her eyes are the light blue element
of the colour combo, and she is drawn
with blue Inktense pencil.

The quote is by 
Queen Elizabeth II.

I won't be around for a week or so,
I'm off for a lovely family holiday
on a Greek Island, Zante.

I was surprised the Queen said that. I wonder if it was during the war years. Lovely art and quote, though. Your sad lady got the point across.

BTW, I am so envious of your trip. I've never been anywhere out of North America, so that sounds (and looks) like an ideal vacation.
