This week the Colour Collective prompt was 'Duck Egg Green', which struck me as a good colour to use in a river setting - so this week my song inspiration is Moon River, music by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Johnny Mercer:
Wider than a mile
I'm crossin' you in style
Old dream maker
Wherever you're goin'
I'm goin' your way
Off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same Rainbow's end
Waitin' round the bend
My huckleberry friend
Want to hear it? Here's Audrey Hepburn's classic rendition in Breakfast At Tiffany's.
I was naturally thinking of Audrey Hepburn while I drew this, but I didn't want to actually draw her - I just went with more of a gamin look, which worked well for the theme of the song, which isn't a swelling romantic ballad, like most songs featuring the word 'moon' in the title seem to be. I was originally going to use red accents, but in the end I decided on orange, which I though suited the mood better.
