Painted Lyrics {Zero 7}


A couple years ago I picked up a nice set of gouache paints to give me another option for coloring my illustrations. I practiced with a few paintings, but I haven't touched them since. Since I've been spending so much of my time graphic-designing, I have really been itching do do something more with my hands. So I decided to break out the paints again. 

I'm assigning myself a mini project: since I listen to music every day while working, I thought I would use it as my inspiration for some mini paintings to hone my gouache skills. 

Today's inspiration is from the song "In the Waiting Line" by Zero 7. Here's the song in case you aren't familiar:

I don't want to spend a lot of time on these, since I have plenty of other things to do. I'm going to try to limit myself to 2 or 3 colors to keep it simple. And I don't think I'll do these every day, just when the lyrical inspiration hits. 

Have a wonderful day!
