This week the people’s choice for colour was hot pink and orange – two colours I love. I have completed two pieces this week one a small painting and a digital piece.
As if you were on fire
The Moon lives
in the lining
of your skin
However I wasn’t sure I wanted to add a blue glaze to her skin, so have decided to leave it for the time being and see what I think in a week or two. (The face is actually darker in real life, because it is so dark and grey, I had to use the flash and it bleached the centre of the painting.)
This second piece was one I started before my shoulder operation. We have had a glorious autumn with some amazing colours. This last week or so we have slipped into a horrible wintry weather pattern, grey and more grey, so having to work in these bright colours brings back summer. The trees are from photos I took on a walk about 6 weeks ago and the girl I got from Free Digital Vintage Photos.
Why not check out some wonder work by other participants on the Summer of Color that Kirstin is hosting on her blog. Even better why not join in. You can see my work also on my photo stream or click on to the Color of Summer’sphoto stream at Flickr.
