The colours this week are so summer-y, I really enjoyed seeing all the art that was created by the Summer of Color-participants. Still, I'm longing so much to use my absolute favorite colours like yellows and oranges. Maybe next week ....
As I showed before, this is what my first layer looked like:
This was the colour-combination for this week: pink, apple green, and a touch of dark green:
And this is the result: some happy girls enjoying life. I guess the colours brought that out :-)
This week we had such beautiful weather. Winter has started here, but we had clear blue skies and sun the whole day. So I could finally paint outside (in summer it's usually way too hot). Took advantage to start 2 new canvases with a lot of dripping.
This is the first one:
This'll be another one like "Connections", so the background will change a lot before I start drawing the figures.
And this one I started a long time ago, but didn't get further than the first few layers. I decided to start adding some contrast with black & white, but when I brought it back inside, I saw that it was a bit crooked. I hate is when that happens! Lately I´ve taken the habit of only using box-canvases, but this one was an old one that was laying around. I really don´t know what to do now: continue or throw it in the bin ... ?
There are a lot of layers on there already, so I would hate to throw it away. What do you do in a situation like that? I have thought about using some MDF to glue it on, but it's 50x70cm (19.7x27.6inches) so that would make it really heavy. I'll just leave it like this for now ....
Well, that's it for now! Thanks so much for visiting! I'll be linking this to Paint Party Friday and to Summer of Color. Go have a look over there, and join in if you want!
Hope you have a nice day, and for my American visitors: happy 4th of July!
