Drabble: Colour Me Beautiful

The vibrant silk kimono clashes with my Chanel red lips and nails, but I decide it doesn’t matter; certain shades of orange, like terracotta, are tonal, subtler than red. Sienna, baked clay, emits earthy, soothing warmth, and I consider trying a different lipstick.

Orange, combining the energy of red and the happiness of yellow; the fruity hue suits my fair flesh and lifts my complexion. I imagine an artist whirling his brush in sunshine, dipping sable into coral, creating whorls on his palette. I resolve to explore complementary colours, expand my wardrobe to match the seasons and colour me beautiful.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I adore choosing images from Dreamstime artists to illustrate my Drabbles.

Gmargittai - Thank you. Your words are heartwarming x :-)


Very nice abstract illustration, congratulations!


I am not sure I can fully grasp all the hidden subtleties of your drabbles. One thing is certain, you know how to write and I enjoy reading them


I love your religious illustrations. Beautiful concepts very well implemented. David.


Is this an illustration ? At first I thought it was abstract art ! Very nice anyway. David
