testing testing..

Whenever i start painting an illustration i keep a strip of paper beside me to test and prepare colours before i paint it in. The last illustration i made was so colourful that even the strip looked pretty by the time i finished! 
I added a little me on top to finish it off!

Hi Urmila, a pleasure to see a post of yours
you have had a very good idea to show the test strip of paper with your little "you"
It looks very cute and funny :)

I do the same thing, but I never thought to make it an illustration! This is wonderful!

Nice work Urmila, really like the colour strip and your ink drawing on top look great!

Such a neat idea! I did that quite a lot until I finally did a whole page with all my Copic marker colors for reference. :) This could be a great, unique bookmark!
