Colour appeals to the senses and emotions. What if blue communicated angry?
Use colour to send an unexpected message.
Pastels on card. I primed the card with gesso to give it more ‘tooth’ (roughness for the pastels to stick to). Size A2. Exploring tones (as in tints n shades – you know – not lines).
P.s. Pastels need fixative (they are chalky and rub off the paper with contact). I ran out of fixative so used no-name hairspray. A great emergency (and budget) tip !! Makes the drawings smell pretty too 😀 (not sure about the archival quality tho 😉
