Oh, Mom, These Colors are Soooo 70s: 2010

Can’t we get some more interesting colors?

Mr. Sunshine rolls his eyes at the box of gouaches as I prepare to work on an illustration.

I admit, they are from my college days, but the primaries and secondaries and black, white and gray are just pretty basic colors. I think he preferred the brighter and fluorescent colors I used to paint Lucy’s illustrations. So did I, but most things start with this palette.

Wow, this was way before the new studio and the daily sketches and everything. Mr. Sunshine got his wish with more interesting colors, that’s for sure.

And Mr. Sunshine certainly turned out to be an art critic.
