The Summer of Color: Week 2

Sorry for the radio silence this week. I am working very hard to finish my June project for Camp Loopy and nearly all of my free time is devoted to it. I'm still not certain I will finish by the end of the month as the rows are veeeery long now.

I did take a break during the week to play with the colors for this week. The winning combo was orange and hot pink. Totally not anything I would normally pair together, but since that is the idea here, I ran with it. Again, going in without a plan seems to have worked. I gathered up all of my orange and pink art supplies and just played. The hot pink paint was mixed by me as I don't keep anything like that around. I did happen to have some washi tape though, so of course I had to throw it in.

Summer of Color: Week 2

As an aside, I am only allowing myself the addition of any of anything on the gray scale (that would be white to black, and anything in between).

This little bit of play has a very graffiti-like quality to it. Again, not a style that I like to produce, though I do admire it when others do it.

Not sure if I could do this all the time, but I did have similar results in a play piece I did for an art class. I don't think I have shared that one here.

Linking up at Twinkle, Twinkle. I'm going back to knitting and should find some time before the end of the month to take photos of my Finish-a-Long FOs...

I agree, not a color combo I would typically do. You pulled it off though and it looks great. I also browsed through your other projects and WOW, you have a lot of beautiful projects going. :)

Pretty background, yes it does look graffiti-ish, but nice! Lots of energy and joy there :).
