How do you get better at anything? Practice, of course- usually lots of practice. Inspired by Halloween & my love of candy, I figured, what could be more perfect to use than lyrics & quotes from the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie! The whole movie is swimming with lovely verses. Plus, all the whimsy involved made many of these quotes perfect for practicing color compositions. I also specifically used mainly pencils, instead of the ink I tend to favor. Pencils give a very different texture, & they are more mobil than a wet medium.
Happy Halloween! Enjoy your candy & colors.
