The Summer of Color


I stumbled upon this art challenge last week at Twinkle Twinkle.
 
It was too late to join in on the first week. I thought I'd give this week a go so I dusted off my paint brushes and got creating. Being short on time with an 11 month old baby tottering around me, I can only do creativity in short bursts at the moment. I would have  liked to add a bit more to it but I'm happy with the little bit I have done.
 
Here's what I have come up with!
I painted this floral piece on a bit of off cut wood with Jo Sonjas acrylic colours

This week the colours are coral, teal and a splash of white.

I like your flower and I like that's it's painted on board, something a bit different.

I really enjoyed that your substrate was wood. It's something I haven't seen while visiting this year's SOC participants. And of course, I love the flower, and how it pops against the teal background. Stunning entry.

Hi Anne, well done for joining in (with an 11 month old baby!) - and your artwork is gorgeous. I love that you've painted it on wood, it gives it a folk art kind of look.

Hope to see you joining in next week too!
