I cannot believe week six of the Summer of Colour is here and this concludes the Ice Cream Inspiration challenge that our graceful host Kristin has created. It has been fun, inspiring and so wonderful to see many types of art and craft work done by so many talented artists.
This last weeks colour inspiration is....Watermelon Ice
apparently the black chunks here are bits of chocolate. Doesn't this look so refreshing.
And here is my take on this weeks colour. It sure looks very pink here in the photo. I painted water colour paper using a mask and water colour paints. I added some brown using a sequin waste piece and acrylic paint. I found this anonymous quote over at the Quote Garden under the crayon heading.
I have really enjoyed this challenge and it is so much fun to see some of my sketches transform from graphite to colour.
Thank you everyone who has dropped by and left wonderful comments over the last 6 weeks and a special thank you to Kristin for organizing each week of colour prompts and the weekly prizes we are all eligible to win.
I am going to take a break from challenges now as I start to prepare for my fall craft shows. I am starting early this year.
I have also been working on upcycling an old dresser and I finally finished it today. It has been almost 2 weeks of painting but I am really happy with it. It will be part of my craft storage for all those bits and bobs that pile up and stashes you need to hide away when company comes.
It has been brutally hot and paint was drying very fast but it is now done and I can't wait to share with you the final result.
