Summer of Color is a 6 week blog party, hosted by Kristin of Twinkle Twinkle, celebrating (you guessed it) COLOR! This is the 4th year of SOC, but my first time participating. Each week a color palette is announced as a creative prompt. This week's colors are Raspberry & Tangerine with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Lemon.
This is it, folks. My last post for SOC4. This has been so much more fun than I could've imagined. Kristin's palettes challenged me and inspired a lot of new work that I feel very proud of. It's been quite the fruitful Summer, despite the fact that it raced by so quick I barely got a glimpse of it.
To those of you who've stuck with this challenge as well, give yourself a high 5! (I guess when you high-5 yourself, it's really just called clapping, huh?) It's a real accomplishment to stick to anything for 6 weeks!
Oh yeah, art! This week I painted another portrait. I call her the Raspberry Queen.
And some close-up shots...
The lips are my favorite part. I tried to make them look stained, as if she'd been eating berries.
