Hi All! I am still sick, but I was feeling good enough to sit for a bit and enjoy some art!
The summer is finally here, and I have been inpiried by fresh things - fresh friut, fresh vegtables, fresh sunshine and air. Orange and green always give me sensation of crisp, clean and with a little more spice than the freshness of spring; Spring is very innocent and new. Summer is a more ripened fresh - freshness that promises abundance. In the spirit of that I have chosen orange and green for this week.
BUT there are many versions of orange and green - gold and aqua, turquoise and lime, or spanish orange and mint. Choose whatever flavor of orange and green you like and create something that is fresh and crisp!
Below is a page from my journal - I chose blendings of turquoise and lime green together with lemon yellow (a cool greenish yellow), melon and orange. I wanted to create an image reminiscent of Degas and the Paris impressionists.
