Prompt: Under the umbrella
prompted by: Jools62, during Sketch Fest #109 (May, 2019)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

One of the many colour options I could choose from. When I did the colour-part in one tint, it looked too solid. Rainbow seems to match it very well though. Printed on heavy, smooth paper (Canson 224 g/m²). Selfportrait.

mikka says: How fabulous! And I agree, the cool-to-warm gradient suits very well. ~ Reply?

     Afke replied to this: Thanks! I've tried various colours already; all are neat, because they prevent it from looking too much like a heavy block of colour. :) But I always prefer following the rainbow principles of coolest to warmest, to make the gradient look most natural, whatever hues I pick. The ink also mixes (the image above has 4 inks colours), so that prevents weird mixes coming up.

Mayumi Ogihara says: This is so beautiful! Lovely colours, too 💗 ~ Reply?

     Afke replied to this: Thanks! I think these are pretty much my favourite colours. :D
