The Blues…

Denim Watercolour

I treated myself to a new watercolour last week – indigo. Of course I had to try it out, so I did a series of small samples to go in my 14.5 x 14.5 cm sketchbook. Above is Indigo combined with Cobalt Turquoise.

Denim Watercolour 2

This sample is Prussian Blue combined with Indigo

Denim & Lace Watercolour

This sample is Pthalo Turquoise mixed with Burnt Sienna.

These shades of blue and turquoise are some of my most favourite watercolour shades. These watercolour samples inspired me to do a whole series of denim photos:

Indigo - Vintage - DIB

Zipper 2 - DIB

Blue Jeans

Usually it’s photography that inspires me to create some art but this time it was a little artwork that inspired me to take a series of photos. You can view more of these denim images in my Photostream on Flickr.
