Arty Advent Day 16: My Niece Chose My Colours

For December 1st-24th (and possibly a Christmas day bonus), I’ll be posting an art-related blog post every day.  If you visit my blog during this time, let me reassure you that I’m not just an art blog.  I do all the crafts.  You can look through my archives, or stay tuned for future posts, to see the other crafty things I get up to. 

This is a challenge that’s been going around the YouTube art community.  Well, it did.  I’m a little late to the party.  I asked my four year old niece Aislynn to pick out some colours for me to use, from the set of colouring pencils I keep in my backpack for us to use together.  She picked a yellow pencil, an orange pencil and a grey pencil.

I considered using just those three pencils, but I’m really into using my alcohol markers at the moment, so I wanted to go with them instead.  And since the challenge was a palette picked by someone else, not a three marker challenge, I allowed myself to use all my yellows, all my oranges and all my greys.

I’m pretty chuffed with the result.  What do you think?
