Desperately Needed Colour

By LynneJoyce  
When I opened the curtains this morning I was met by a panorama of relentless greys. I realised then that I desperately needed some colour so I set about creating some colourful images using my own drawings. I call them my sanity drawings because drawing has helped to preserve my sanity during very hard times. Many of them were done while I was sitting with Garrath in the hospice and the nursing home and more have been done at home since his death.

When I have finished an A4 sheet I photograph or scan them then play with them on the computer. I can also correct minor smudges, but sometimes I don't bother, preferring to show, even emphasise their hand drawn qualities. Some are coloured with felt tipped pens, coloured pencils and the like, with some I just create a black and white framework with drawing pens (V's 10 & 12) then add the colour in Photoshop.

Anyway here they are. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of them.

I envy and admire your way with drawing and color. It is a wonderful talent to have. V1 is especially wonderful, it has depth and texture as well as glorious color. You get my award for creativity and the use of art as therapy.

A very colourful and psychedelic set, Lynne! 👍🏼 We need some splashes of colour today, foggy all day day here in Wakefield, but the temperature has crept up from minus 4 this morning to minus 2! ❄️

Really brightened up my day, Lynne. Don't know what the temperature is in Shipley, but -3 here in Drighlington.

Fabulous creations, Lynne. And thank you for bringing colour into our lives too.
These images shine like a very bright star in the EPZ universe.
