The Summer of Color

The Summer of Color, week 3, hosted by Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle.

This week's colours are lavender, grey and plum!


Here's my picture for this week. I used silver paint (it was a bit gluggy) for the grey, Liquitex deep violet ink for the plum colour and mixed some acrylic paint for the lavender!

I'm fighting a head cold today so my picture is painted a bit roughly. If I didn't do it today, I wouldn't have got it done! I made up this pattern painted on a bit of off cut wood like I did last week. The off cut of wood measures just under 3 inches by 4 inches. 

Thanks to everyone who stopped and left lovely feedback comments :) It is nice to see everyone leaving comments on each others blogs.

This looks great! The wood and pattern have the feel of folk art, but the colors bring it into the 21st century. I guess it's like modern folk art. :)

Feel better soon!

This is very pretty, Anne. I sure hope you are feeling better. It is hard to concentrate on anything creative when you don't feel good.
