I {Heart} Jewel Tones

I love jewel tones. Ruby. Sapphire. Emerald. Amethyst. If you open up my closet, once you get past the abundance of striped tops, pretty much everything that isn’t black is jewel tones. I like them because they’re rich, and deep, yet you don’t feel like your clothing is screaming “HEY! HEYYYYYYYY!!!!!! LOOK AT MEEEEEEE!” Maybe that’s a little over-dramatic, but I’m just not a hey-look-at-me sorta gal.

Anyway, after the deep purple drawing I made a few days ago, thought it would be fun to do a series of similar pieces in all of my favorite jewel-tones colors. Amazingly, I was able to get three done pretty quickly without a certain someone climbing up into my lap and banging on the keyboard. Weird. Although I did get up to grab a snack and came back to find her opening up Photoshop. Maybe I have a little designer in the works.
