July Colours of the Month

The next post chronologically in my actually-blogging-the-backlog-of-monthly-challenges series is the July Colours of the Month.

By July, Marker Universe had gotten themselves a website.  When they release the colours they give them in hex codes, Copics colours and all sort of brands from Winsor & Newton to Graph’It.  New brands seem to be added every month.

The colours for July were just gorgeous.

Next up, swatching.  This became a little more complicated than normal.  With the colours in other brands, sometimes the colours are quite different.  So I swatched for both the Copic colours and the Winsor & Newton ones.

And I settled on this palette.

Right, now what to draw with them?  You know me, I like to multi-task.  So I combined this challenge with the Animaloon of the month.  July was Snake-loon.  I considered having a snake blown up like a balloon, but figured that was a little obvious.  Instead I went with a snake wrapped around a balloon.

And that’s it.  That’s the last delayed Colours of the Month challenge.  In future I shall do my best to post them in a timely fashion – or at least to not let so many of them pile up.

The actually-blogging-the-backlog-of-monthly-challenges series is not quite finished yet though.  I still have July’s Scrawlr box to blog about.
