Inspired by a summer song

Is there a summer song that you hum and can't get out of your head? I have one that I grew up with - it's 'We're all going on a summer holiday', sung by Cliff Richard many many years ago. my inspiration of today's word art came from the lyrics of summer holiday.

Here are the materials I used:

Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen Soft Brush India ink pen, black

Faber-Castell Graphite pencil Goldfaber 1221 HB

Faber-Castell Connector paint box 24 colors + brush

Faber-Castell Water cup Clic&Go light green

Faber-Castell Kneadable Art Eraser, grey

Faber-Castell Goldfaber color pencils - Cobalt Turquoise 153, Dark Cadmium Orange 115

Other: watercolor paper trimmed to 9x6 inches

Start by sketching out the lyrics with pencil on watercolor paper. You can include only a few lines or the whole of your favorite song.

Go over the pencil lines with SB tip PITT pen in black. As I started lettering with the pen, I decided to make my letters bigger and did not want to include all the lines that I had written with pencil. Erase pencil lines.

Add any imagery you think suits the lyrics. I sketched a sun at the top and a line near the bottom as the horizon line of ocean.

Using Connector Paints, color in the sun and sea.

Add some details and outlines with Goldfaber color pencils to finish.

I hope your summer is off to a great start and that you'll find some time to make art!
