Tangled up in blu-u-ue

(Anyone else live with a Bob Dylan fan? That song title just popped into my mind for this post!)

Each of these pieces began with blue washes, and a little gray. One is on a piece of mat board and the other on art paper.

  1. Thank you, Margaret - I love the shades of blue. Could you tell me where to get the Microns in these different shades?

    Lots of greetings from Germany -

    1. Hello Heike,
      Microns in the 01 size come in several colors: brown, sepia, blue, green, red, orange, deep pink, and black of course. If you go to the 05 or larger there are some more color options. I'm not sure where you might find them in Germany, but perhaps the Sakura website could help.

    1. Hi Angela, too bad you couldn't join us at CanTangle recently. Maybe I'll give another "rows of houses" class somewhere!
