Lizard Explorer by ursulav Lizard Explorer by ursulav
This color scheme has me by the throat. It's basically just quinacridone magenta and paris blue, with a few other random reds slopped in occasionally, but it's got me. I tried blue and green. It was a definite "Meh." It didn't glow the way the magenta does.

And then there's the pink lizards, who also seem to be invading my brain, like this guy, off exploring the vast Quinacridone Caves in his little lizard boat. (Hopefully he'll be able to avoid the Valley of Wang this time!) Something about them just appeals to me. Maybe I was a small pink not-very-bright lizard in a past life.

That would explain my strange desire to eat cave crickets...

In contrast to the phalic mushrooms it looks at first to me when I saw the thumb nail the combination of the rock behind him and the paddle seemed like the female genitals upside down.

this is "my band of colors". my favorite spectrum/blend of colors in the world. rose quartz, amethyst, and stuff that vibrates even higher(maganta!) so, way cool for your pics using this.

Quinacridone Magenta snagged me a few months back, too... *sigh* It and unbleached titanium traded my soul between them like a pair of vibrant slavers.

Maybe the boat could have been a little more blue, just to set it apart from the rocks and water and match the paddle :)

Damn :omg: That's awesome. I love how you kept the same color scheme as in the lizard-love picture, and you're fantastic at watercolors. The little touches you put in pictures just amaze me...like the mushrooms. And the little lizard head on the boat. So so awesome :+fav:

Has you noticed the lizards' resemblence to feti? The pinkness! The big heads and itty bitty limbses! The floating around in warm colored liquid! Seems apropriate. What else would you get from wangs? ^.^

Very cute style going though! The color is indeed scrumptious.
