Viviva's Midnight Blue from their Spring Collection is much closer to Indigo than the sheet marked Indigo. Midnight Blue is dark and moody and plays nicely with their Slate Black (similar to Payne's Grey). Just about perfect for the Stellar Jay feather that found its way to my drawing board today. (Spoiler alert: July's Nature Sketchbook Club involves not only feathers, nest and eggs, but just might include a set of colorsheets, stay tuned for more details.)

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
