Summer of Color, Week 3

Summer of Color is a 6-week art party lead by Kristen of Twinkle Twinkle. I participated last year for the 4th go-round, and I had so much fun that I'm back at it again for Summer of Color 5!

The guidelines for this week's palette were to choose 2 shades of purple and one shade of yellow.

Once I'd chosen my favorite trio of shades, I used them to create this painting:

I left this one rougher than I would've liked. I just don't have the time this week with wedding planning going on. But, I think there's a nice quality to leaving it rough as well. Perhaps I'll call it a happy happenstance.

Here's a little animation of the process:

Thanks for coming by! Leave me a comment before you head off to check out the rest of the participants entries for this week.

  3. WOnderful! The yellow for the highlights works so well!

  4. Very super made! Your painting reminds me of Gauguin... Ulrike

  5. very well done :D I think with digital work, leaving it rough helps give the work a more painterly look :)
