"Our self-expression is meant to be a manifestation of the silence of our hearts." ~Matthew Fox

We had such a nice rainbow recently - I love to see rainbows - you too?

Rainbows and color-palettes are wonderful...
that brings me to my trusty Koh- I-Noor* Hardtmuth Mondeluz 48
watersoluble coloring pencils.

They are great - a very good price - much cheaper than many other artist grade brands but super rich pigmented. I used just this pencils, a waterbrush and  different black markers for my spread.

I took a VOGUE cover as an inspiration and reference for the face.

  9. Wow-those pencils look like that gorgeous rainbow. I love rainbows too. And (getting back to the pencils), they do have wonderful color. I book marked them on Amazon and one of these days I am going to order a set because I have yet to find a color pencil I really like. Yours do have great color. And of course, you made a wonderful page with them. Hope its a great day so far. Hugs-erika

  10. ooh fantastic drawing and artwork Susi - your handwriting is amazing too.
    Thanks for the pencil info - will have a look at them.
    Love looking at rainbows too and especially if there's a double one :) I remember once when I was a child standing at the end of the rainbow on a cliff (didn't think it was possible) but I was disappointed to find there was no promised pot of gold :(

  13. Yes, love rainbows! That's a face to ponder. Seems to have a lot of depth to her...something to say. :)

  14. Das ist ein schönes Foto vom Regenbogen - ist ja nicht so leicht zu knipsen! Bei der Journalseite finde ich das Vöglein so interessant mit dem Wort innen - das macht sich gut! Und die Koh-I-Noor nach Farben geordnet wie der Regenbogen, toll!

  15. Rainbows are genuinely nature's wonders. Not sure where you found that quote, but it's a genuine beauty, just like the pencils you used to make this wonderful spread.

    I like that your faces will now be ongoing, too!
