Zahrah the Windseeker

Zahrah the Windseeker is a wonderful fantasy novel by Nnedi Okorafor! I made this a "cover" image after reading this book I bet I would have loved it when I was a teen., too. :) Also experimenting with color - mixing in layers on the paper rather than on the palette, and using more translucent, staining pigments.

Summer Popsicles

Another gem from Soraya's photos! Had fun bleeding color and experimenting with color mixing right on the paper - not the palette. In love with Quinaqidrone, gold! Manganese blue, purple, and prussian blue, too.

Ballet Screamers

Saw a stock photo that tickled me...followed it loosely. More fun with color! Not keen on the yellow bknd., though.

Back to School

Saw two girls crossing the street one day. The movement of their legs, the way they were dressed was interesting, so I drew this from memory. Might color it...
