Retro Kitchen by WDWParksGal Retro Kitchen by WDWParksGal
For the "At Home" Contest coloring the lineart:

Entries

Colored by hand using Prismacolor Paint Markers, as well as Sharpies.

The idea is a retro kitchen using deco-pink to paint the appliances. I do remember seeing some pink appliances in the 1950s! By the time I got married Avocado Green was the "in" color and looking back it certainly was nasty. Of course, everyone and everything in the 1970s looked bad! I printed the lineart on a heavy stock but still had some issues with color bleed. Am glad to get a picture of it and posted as it took me working on and off days to color this. I am dang slow, that is for sure.

Contest held by `AwsumZ ~ lineart credit goes to him :aww:

I remember a time when a kitchen was well-used and the family sat down every night for dinner. Sigh. Now we eat in front of the TV :shrug:

When I first saw the line art it reminded me of the kitchens with aluminum cabinets, the pink and black tiled-backsplash and the pink appliances. I just had go retro with it!
