Starry Night, in Procreate. Working with a limited color palette

Is everyone excited about the first day of fall tomorrow? Does it still feel like summer to anyone else? It’s 85 degrees Fahrenheit today, which feels more July than September for Pennsylvania.

Side note: I never remember how to spell Fahrenheit. I always just sound it out and let spell check handle it for me. Also a sticky spelling word: Souvenir. I keep wanting to add extra “e”s to the end of it. Does anyone else have words their brains just can’t seem to wrap around?

I’ve just returned from a vacation in Maine, and I had such a wonderful time! We went to Bar Harbor and explored Acadia National Park. Hiking is a lot of fun. And even though it turns out I am allergic to lobster, there’s a lot of other great things about Bar Harbor besides lobster. Like ice cream! and a bookstore! And beautiful views! and lots of hiking with big rocks! If you like hiking and ice cream (and lobster) I hope you’ll get a chance to go there someday.

#Kidlitart: Color Chat: List of Links

Every Thursday night at 9:00pm EST, there’s a Twitter chat using the hashtag #kidlitart. All you need is to write the hashtag with your tweet to join the conversation 🙂

Last night’s #kidlitart discussion was about color. We talked about color schemes, theory, color palettes we liked working in and shared a ton of references.

Two of my favorites were Adobe Kuler and Color Scheme Designer. You can click the images for links to the sites. All links were mentioned in the chat last night.
