Summer of Color Week 5

Week 5 already!  This week's colors are green + green + pink.

Here is my entry for the Summer of Color Week 5  Our colors are green + green + pink.
I switched to watercolors this week.  Using a lime green, a dark green and a pink.

My try at a hydrangea.  All those little flower petals are tougher to draw and paint than I thought they would be. :)  I like the leaves and jar better than the flower :)

Aw well.... It's still all fun.

Summer of Color week 4

Summer of color week 4
Colors are red + red + metallic.

These were tough colors to work with, but still a fun challenge.

I used true red, rose red and metallic gold acrylics.
I had a small problem, that the rose red was much more transparent than the true red, so when I blended, the true red took over.
Then to incorporate a 2nd red, I added black, which made it too dark of a red for what I wanted and the rose red wouldn't cover it.

It's difficult to photograph metallic in a painting.  I had to get the sun to hit it just right without getting too much glare.  A challenge in itself.
