The Summer of Colour! ~Show & Tell~

What a colourful summer this has been, thank you so much to Kristin for hosting such an amazingly inspiring challenge! I've *met* so many wonderful & talented people through this challenge & am looking forward to continue following you all on you artsy ventures!!

Here's a snapshot of all my works this summer...I have to admit, I'm sorry to see it come to an end... at the start I was so apprehensive because, well working with colour just has never been my strong suit, so I'm quite pleased that I was able to complete each weekly challenge!

Summer of colour!_edited-1

Week one ~blue~ is a perfect example, here is an old drawing that I coloured using photoshop...(not quite ready to tackle colouring quite yet....week two ~green~ well, here I used some water colour pencils to fill in the leaves & flowers on my *Wall Flower*.  By week three ~pink~ I went on a limb and bought a set of coloured pencils & created *All Dressed Up & no Where to Go.*  Wow, yellow, I thought for sure I'd be skipping since this was the week we took our yearly vacation to Busch Gardens VA.  Well, sure enough I stumbled upon a pic of Maddie w/ her face painting...& was able to pull off my *Little Tiger* :)  Week five ~Brown~ well, right away when I heard this colour I knew it just had to be *Brown Eyed Girl*  really, for the first time working with water colours... Water colours once again with my purple Unicorn.  *Lady in Red* was the obvious choice for me, using coloured pencils....& last but not least my *Little Fairy* once again being inspired by my Maddie...what a better way to end the summer than to make her into the little fairy that I know she already is ;)

What a wonderful way to celebrate summer, than to celebrate it with colour!!!

Thanks again Kristin...I'll be sure to continue you on your journey full of colour & art!!

  3. They are so amazing. I seem to have missed a few of these over the weeks (somehow I never quite had the time to visit all 90 or so every week). It's great to catch up like this and see them in all their glory.

  5. They are all so beautiful together. I think Kristin's idea of show and tell has been so interesting. This is probably the only time that we will have looked back over all our weeks and see how we have all progressed.

  6. Well this is just an amazing line up! WHAT a beautiful talent you are - and I love that you went out on a limb and bought those colors! AND it has been fun to see you get bolder and bolder. Although there is such an elegance to your pieces devoid of color as well ;) They are all so beautiful and are obviously created with such heart. THANK you for sharing all of this with us! xo
