|Summer poppy (gouache and ink)|
Week Two of the Summer of color challenge and this week Artists and crafters from around the world were asked to use a limited palette of two main colours with an accent colour. The choice this week is
|Teal, coral and white|
Last week my poppy was aqua blue, this week coral red!
Some of the poppies were a deeper rich red
Beautiful colour combinations can be found all around at this time of year.
A little pixlr magic accentuates the teal and coral colours of this Dock leaf.
I used gouache for my oriental poppy, not a medium I usually use, and because of the limited palette had to abstract and simplify the image more than I would normally. That's what I love about the summer of colour, it gets my brain trying out new things with both colour and form.
