I don't remember the first time I saw Jennifer Orkin Lewis of August Wren's work, but I do know I promptly followed her Instagram & Facebook so I could see more of her wonderful illustrations. The colorful conversational pieces she creates always bring a smile with their loose lines & vibrant colors. Jennifer has a great collection of archival prints, from her painting a day series, available on Etsy that I would strongly recommend checking out as well. She has graciously answered the palette project questions below.
JCH: What color do you wish wasn't there?
JOL: Maybe the sienna brown up towards the top, But I do use it so it needs to be there.
JCH: What is your favorite brush?
JOL: Nothing special, I've been using the Winsor & Newton Cotman brand and they are fine for the moment...
JCH: What is your favorite paper/ surface to paint on?
JOL: I love a beautiful hot press watercolor paper with a fine tooth. But lately I've been using an inexpensive sketchbook from MUJI and I love the way the paint lays on that, and I'll use cheap computer paper and kraft paper sometimes!
JCH: What is your favorite color to work with?
JOL: I skew green... sage, olive, dusty teal. And I'm loving Perylene Violet these days.
