Blue Monday: Colored pencils in a range of blues

Harlequin checks in shades of blue, purple and green, drawn with colored pencil.

A checkered grid ranging from deep navy blue to electric purple and teal.

Harlequin diamonds and cool blues, greens and purples on a deep violet background make for a colorful Blue Monday! Sometimes it’s fun to take some of the materials from a project and make an abstract color study.

A mix of blue, green and purple colored pencils displayed on a color wheel made of swatches from each pencil.

I used a mix of Faber-Castell’s Polychromos pencils and Caran D’Ache’s Supracolor Soft Aquarelle pencils for the Polyphemus moth project.

These are the pencils I used to create the blue tones in the drawing Polyphemus Moth on a Japanese Brocade. Clockwise from the top: Faber-Castell Polychromos Sky Blue 9201-146; F-C Prussian Blue 9201-246; Caran D’Ache Supracolor 3888-111; F-C Ultramarine 9201-120; F-C Cobalt Green 9201-156; F-C Delft Blue 9201-141; F-C Light Ultramarine 9201-140; F-C Cobalt Turquoise 9201-153; C-D’A 3888-131; F-C Indianthrene Blue 9201-247.

Hope your Monday is a cheerful shade of blue!
