Purple and Lime

Doodling in my sketchbook I kept to a restrained palette of purple and lime green with my two ladies. Which one do you like the best? :)

I'm having to relearn how to scan my pictures because I'm using my new laptop and trying to get used to the programmes on it. Apparently on my old one (that died unexpectedly one day,) I was using an 11 year old programme, Microsoft Office Picture Manager which I could do almost blindfolded! This new laptop doesn't have it but at least I've worked out how to make them smaller so they don't cover your entire computer screen. ;)
And some good news, I have a clever son who rescued my old hard-drive from the abyss and I have all my pictures back again,

I love these ladies! You have captured the style I hanker after again.

I love them both! In this very moment - the second one, because the drawing is full of life and light! But when I feel down, my favourite will be the first one, for sure. I like there the lime colour accent!
Oh, how nice to have all the images saved! A big sigh and good for your son!:))

How wonderful to have your pictures back. What a horrible loss that would have been! Your two new ladies look very lovely in lime and purple.

Yay for clever sons! phewph too, Jake lost all his stuff again off his laptop!! He forgot to back up. Its a pain having to learn new programs isn't it, why cant they make them all the same lol. Sorry to hear u get pesky food allergy problems too, its so hard to monitor it all the time isn't it. Loving your restrained palette, i keep trying to do that, but really struggle ;)

They look like princesses!
I like the backgrounds too, they are very delicate and feminine, perfect for the ladies in it.
I think the second one has a secret :)
