Drawings: Bright on Black

posted on: 4.24.2014

I have always been more of a painter, but recently I've revisited drawing, specifically with colored pencils. In high school I went through a phase with this medium on black board, and here I am again. The colors just better pop and I tend to feel more fulfilled in the end when my work has a stronger sense of contrast. Although these drawings are more or less glorified doodles, I greatly enjoyed depicting these two beauties: Sandra, one of my favorite bloggers, and Kenzie, a dear friend who has always supported my artistic dreams.

Please send me your thoughts on this aesthetic style, I'm always looking for feedback, and heck...maybe a new subject?

Because what more can really be said for gorgeous flower fields and my love of these overalls, behold five completely unrelated tidbits.

1. I've recently started brushing my hair again and now can't believe I gave it up in search of volume.
2. The other day I found an error in National Geographic Magazine in regards to the distance of space. I am pretty proud of this, thanks Astronomy C10.
3. I am currently addicted to Pinterest. I never thought this would happen, but it's a problem.
4. On the day after Easter I ate an entire bag of Twizzlers, gross.
5. What I wore to work today could have easily been on my husband instead, clearly I need a girls night out.

How about you all, any random confessions? I'm sure you have 'em, spill.

Romping Around

Romper: Asos, Sandals: Zara (similar here)

Sundays in the park are always are significantly improved by wearing rompers with zebra printed bows. Trust me.

ModCloth: Uniquely You

ModCloth Style Challenge

This week I am participating in Modcloth's "Uniquely You" style challenge. I chose to style this bold red maxi dress. Because red is such a strong (in the best way possible) color I chose to pair it with muted tones. However, this is not to say each other item is inferior. I mean look at the stripes on those wedges, or the floral patten on that headband, and don't get me started on those pineapple studs. Love. it. all.

See my Wanelo submission here. I'm new to this fash-app, so please Wanelo veterans- teach me!

My trend interest this week is not a style but a color, and a muted one at that. Blush is nude and pink's star love child. I want this color in every worn form possible, most intensely in this dress and this bag. Thought's on blush people? I'm assuming only positive affirmations will be given here, because like I implied it is the perfect pink.

Floral Top: Shopbop (sold out, similar here and here)

Spring is here which means it's basically summer in Santa Barbara. What's important is that I can finally work on my tan allowing me to sport off-the-shoulder blouses. Ironically, I spent Sunday eating chocolate chip cookies and macaroons making it harder for me to get in a bikini to work on that tan. Ughhh 15 year old metabolism please return to me!
