Summer of color: week 3

The flavor of the week is Baseball Nut. I would never in my wildest dreams have associated that with ice cream! The things you learn from Blogging are endless ...

Baseball nut is vanilla, black raspberry and cashews. Interesting colour combination I think.

So I started out with a background in those colors again.
And found that my Summer of Color paintings are turning into Summer of Birds paintings. Because I saw birds. Again!

Actually, this time I saw 2 possibilities, depending on how I held the canvas.

 This way up, I saw a bird in the upper right corner, and a face with 2 eyes in the upper left corner. 

And this way up ....
I just saw 2 pairs of eyes ....

I decided to go with the second one, and this is what came out of it:

I'm not sure whether I'm completely satisfied with it. Seeing it on the computerscreen there are some things that bother me about it. So I might play with it some more. But for now it'll do.

Going to have a look at the other participants now. There are 70 already!
Thanks for visiting! I'll be back in 2 days with another inspiring artist (there are sooo many!)

  5. Oh beautiful and I can see the girls eyes in the second image too. It came out great.

    You were my inspiration for my Summer of Color painting for this week....It came out kind of quirky, not beautiful like yours. But you see what you see right? :)
