This is this week’s contribution to Summer of Color challenge that you can find out more about here on Kristin’s blog. The colours for this week were purple and green which I have to say were not my first choice and so this week has been a bit of a struggle, but that is part of what I like about this challenge. Can I also at this juncture say a big thank you to Kristin because I was lucky enough to win last week’s prize and the whole week has felt like I have won lotto!! I am so grateful!
Earlier this year I painted these in my art journal, as an idea for two canvases that are over a metre long that I want to hang in my kitchen. I LOVE asparagus, they represent Spring to me and the end of Winter, and when they are around, I know that my November birthday is not very far away. :)
When I was contemplating what I was going to paint for this week, I saw the canvases that I had put aside for these paintings, covered in gesso and white paint but that was it. I realised there was both green and purple in these paintings so that is what I decided to do.
These are the work in progress as they stand now. I plan on making the stalks longer and painting out the drips. I am not entirely happy with them but will work on them more this week. (Also I left in shots of my floor as mentioned in this post! :))
While I have had these paintings on the go I also did a couple of journal pages.
I have another couple of pages half started but I could not get them to work, so they will sit until I know where they are going! :) I hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend, and I look forward to getting around the other participants and seeing how they used the colours this week. :)
