SUMMER OF COLOR 2015: Week 1 - 6/8/15

Summer of Color is back.  Click on the link to the left to view entries or to participate yourself.

See my image on the Summer of Color 5 Flicker pagehttps://www.flickr.com/photos/cj_proartz/18609859576/in/dateposted-public/

This year, instead of giving us three specific colors, Kristin is giving us two basic colors and we are supposed to choose our own shades of those.

For Week 1, we are supposed to choose two shades of blue and one shade of green.  I always end up with many more shades because when I overlap colors they create more tints and shades. In this image, I combined two of my great loves ---art and quotations.

If you post your images to a blog or to Flickr I can see them. (If you posted to Facebook, sorry, but I don't have a Facebook account, nor do I want one.)

"The Function of the Artist 2"

I have always loved blue and green together.  They seem to be a perfect combination, like the green leaves of summer against a blue sky.

To the right are the three basic colors I chose for this week.

I think blue and green are always perfect together, they remind me of nature, nice take on the colors, I like the circles.

visiting from SOC, hope you have a lovely day.

I get what you mean by the overlapping shades - it works well though!

Wonderful colours and a great quote. I love how the overlapping, translucent colours make new shades. Hugs, Valerie

I was glad to read that I am not the only one who isn't on Facebook. I'm simply thrilled to be able to see this gorgeous first work for SOC 5 in your blog. It is beautiful, and I adore the geometric aspect of it.
