Summer of Color, Week 5


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.

  1. I didn't even notice the skull at first, the colors are really good here. I like the idea of creating without sketching it out, you'll always get something different then what you usually do. good take on the SOC colors.

    have a lovely day.

  13. Your paintings always amaze me, but this one was a real surprise. It's beautiful and scary at the same time.
