Lemon fresh goodness

I know I've said it before, but this color combination of yellow and blue is SO me! It's been a while since I colored up this cheerful bowl of lemony goodness, and it was really calling out to me. ;) This lovely Lemons & Bay image has been carefully illustrated by Karen Lockhart; so much so that I will let you in on a little secret...she shows you where to shadow! (Shhh, don't tell your recipient - let them think you're the master!) The little dots on the lemons make it incredibly easy for you to go in and add some darker gradient color, giving you the perfect lemon. Use two similar colors for the bay leaves and you're set! I colored the bowl cobalt this time because this is a recurring color in my kitchen.

I used Prismacolor pencils on this one for a softer, more-controlled colored look. Sometimes I find small areas like this difficult to color with Copics, so if you experience a similar issue, pull out some pencils to try!

I hope you have a fantastic day! Be well.
