Everything comes to an end ....

and yes, also Summer of Color ... Doing a challenge like this makes you realize how fast 6 weeks are over and done with. I really enjoyed experimenting with my "negative" painting, and all the different colours. Thanks Kristin, for another fun SOC!

Here's my last piece: colours are raspberry and tangerine with a touch of lemon.


In reality the colours are less reddish, but somehow my scanner makes it darker. My orange is darker than the tangerine, because I only saw that it had to be light tangerine after I painted the background. Oh well, it's as close as I could get it anyway :-) And I had to use a strong bright orange to make up for all those weeks without it ;-)

And just for the fun of it: here are all my SOC-pieces since I started playing with the challenge (which was 3 years ago...)! Every year I choose a certain technique that I stick to for all 6 paintings.

2014: negative painting

2013: coloured doodles
2012: intuitive painting

So much fun to see them all again!

I will probably put them up for sale in my Etsyshop some time next week. They are all made on canvasboard size 20x25cm (8"x10").

In the meantime, I'm having fun putting new layers on my next canvas. Here are a few detailpictures:




That's it for this week. I'm still looking for some people who want to participate in an artsy bloghop with me (see previous post). All you have to do is answer 4 questions about your art, and link to 3 other bloggers who answer the same questions. I've read some really interesting answers already, so if you want to be a part of it, let me know and I'll link to your blog next Monday/Tuesday.

Linking this for the last time to Summer of Color, and of course to Paint Party Friday.
Thanks so much for visiting, I wish you lots of love today, and a wonderful fun-filled weekend! ♥ ♥ ♥

  1. It's fun to see how you did the color themes each year. I love your work in progress! The more I paint, the more I am challenged by using color well. I love how you are able to use so many bright colors together in a wonderful harmony.

  21. How terrific to see all 3 years of SOC entries. I this is my 3rd year as well. But I am not organized enough to have them all. When I think of what I was doing then - and what I am doing now - I feel very blessed that my art is going in new directions. I loved your negative paintings for this SOC and I am reminded all over again of how much I loved your entries for the 2 years before that!

  25. Oh yes, we got Orange at last. Your final SOC piece is as glorious as the others, love the free bird.
    Fascinating to see all together and your previous SOC years too and what a good idea to have a theme of your own.

  26. Wonderful work Denise. Its great to see them all together like that and to see the different themes over the years :) Love the colours you are using on your new canvas, I look forward to seeing what you do next.

  32. When I saw this week's colours, my first thought was "denthe will be happy"! Which just shows what a great community-building event this is because this is my first year participating and my first exposure to you and your beautiful art work. I love this week's entry and enjoyed seeing all of this year's pieces as well as those from the other years. Your WIP is sure to be another stunner too. Hope to keep up with your work after the challenge.

  36. I love your negative space paintings and your intuitive ones, especially the one you're currently working on! I'd love to join in the blog hop too but we're going away for a few days, I'm going to miss blogging! I'll look forward to when I can come back and see what you've all been doing!
