  • Mulberry
  • Violet
  • Aquamarine
  • Dark Green
  • Sunburst Yellow

April Buttercup Calendar Spread

Aww!! This one was a happy surprise for me, I wasn’t sure how the colors would work out, but I absolutely loved watching it come together and the results make me smile. There’s a simple sweetness to it, yeah?! I think it’s the rainbow-ness of red, orange, yellow, green… and then the neutral grey for clear quartz rounds it out. Also, coloring the lone pansy was a joy, for some reason, using the black pencil was thrilling. Note to self: more pansies!

Pencils used:

  • Silver
  • 70% Warm Grey
  • Canary Yellow
  • Sunburst Yellow
  • Yellowed Orange
  • Crimson Red
  • Poppy Red
  • Pale Vermillion
