IF - Muddy


In case you haven't noticed, I love color. But for this week's Illustration Friday theme, I decided to limit my colors to just a few in order to illustrate this quote by Lao Tzu. I only used two shades of blue, brown, and a bit of purple. I think these are wise words to remember the next time you're feeling a little muddled. Time and patience are sometimes all that's needed to clear things up. As usual, it was done in my watercolor Moleskine with Pitt pens and watercolor.
