Summer of color: pink chrysanthemums




Two posts in a day!!!

well I am feeling much better after being under the weather for a few days and now up to full speed and able to post this weeks summer of color piece.
Each week a colour prompt is published over at  Twinkle twinkle and artists and crafters scurry away to make something fabulous.
I'm not sure my piece could be called that, but the colour prompt of...

Pink, apple green and a smudge of dark green

Made me think of flowers....again :)


As if by magic these chrysanthemums were in a vase on my mantlepiece already....

It would be rude not to draw them,


It is tough to just use three colours, I cheated a little and varied the shade of pink a little with some white... I know... slapped wrist!!! :)
I do really like this colour combination and it is one I feel at home with...

Can't wait to see what next week brings.

  6. I agree that we can't be rude, because I would have drawn these beauties if I could draw (grin). You did a marvelous job, and I think the color variation gives them their uniqueness.

  8. It is a lovely vase of flowers you've made. You're so right about the challenge being hard with the three colors, but each time I see others work ,it doesn't look as if it was hard to do them. I needed some warmth in mine, so I used lots of yellow. Main subject is the colors though.

  9. This is beautiful! I don't think it's a cheat. Maybe because I'm always sneaking in a little extra here and there... :) Anyway I think your flowers are lovely and what luck they were sitting right there waiting for you to immortalize them!

  16. What a stunning picture, beautifully painted and a lovely composition.
    I like the way you have achieved the transparency of the vase.
    I usually use different shades of the colours, I thought that was OK.

  17. I'm sorry to hear you've been under the weather, I hope you're on the road to recovery now. It certainly looks that way from your gorgeous artwork! I'd find these colours challenging but you've done a great job!
