limonata


my summer drink crush...san pellegrino limonata, a fizzy little one-sip-wonder.

[a perfect sunday: blue sky, quiet walk while the city was still, three hours alone to draw and play, no cooking, classical guitar on youtube, little girls chasing butterflies, a three hour dinner with my husband, a night of painting: restored, i think]

peggy - i use a mixture of cheapie dye & pigment inks and concentrated inks (tria/letraset and koh-i-noor). sometimes i 'paint' directly on the paper with the bottle inks for that intense color, and i layer on top of that with gouache.

tinyred i think you should take a refreshing limonata break.
