Summer of Colour 2 Week 3-Baseball Nut

Sounds yummy doesn't it? Well Kristin has done it again with the flavour or colours of this next week. Here is a peeky at what the colours look like together in an ice cream cone....
Baseball Nut
"A smooth, vanilla flavored ice cream swirled with a black raspberry ribbon and loaded with cashews"
-Baskin Robbins


 And here is my girl wearing her raspberry beret with cashew hair and swirly raspberry and vanilla background done in watercolours, acrylic paint and paper. 
Her dress looks more purple here but it is more of a black raspberry and I gessoed over it a bit to tone it down. I used my fingers to paint the watercolour background with my new watercolour crayons. 

Next week's prompt is Strawberry Lemonade Punch....oooo can't wait to do something with these colours. 
Thanks for dropping by. Don't forget to go to Kristin's blog to check out all the links to those who are participating in this wonderful colour challenge. You will be amazed at the beautiful artwork that is around the web.
Til next time......I have a wonderful frugal art technique to show you....you will want to make some and try it out yourself. I will be supplying a recipe and you more than likely have all the ingredients, all 3 of them.
