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 green and one pink.
Once I'd chosen my favorite trio of shades, I used them to create this painting:
I went about this painting a little differently that I have the others for SOC5. I didn't sketch it first. I started with big blobby marks and then sort of "carved" out the image. This is why I tend to lean more toward painting rather than drawing. My brain sees things in layers and mass rather than lines and shades.
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.
