Summer of Color, Week 6- Final Painting

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 orange and one blue.

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

This is the last painting for this year's SOC and I'm just barely getting it posted in time because I had so much trouble getting proportions and angles how I wanted them. It's still not quite realistic, but it works.

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.
