Color journal week nine

Hi all!

Here is the Color journaling challenge for week nine!

I don't know about you all, but I am getting super antsy for Christmas and it's not even technically Fall yet! So to get a taste of the Christmas cheer without that blatant holiday commercial color palette, let's use a red and green scheme that doesn't look traditionally Christmas.

The work above is at its heart red and green, but the green behind the angel is more of an aqua color with cool blue undertones (colors always appear different on the monitor - what kind of green do YOU see? I am curious! And the dress of the angel is really a spring green - not a color you often see in the winter if you live where I do - in New York, USA! So try your hand at various shades of red and green and see what non-Christmas combinations you can come up with!
