building a rainbow {5 days of color}: pale pink or salmon

We're building a rainbow!!!

Create art in one color each day this week: an art journal page, a sketch, a doodle, a painting, a mixed media work, embroidery, crochet.

DECEMBER 8: PALE PINK or SALMON

DECEMBER 9: LEMON YELLOW or CHARTREUSE

DECEMBER 10: PERIWINKLE or LAVENDER

DECEMBER 11: BROWN or GREY

DECEMBER 12:  RAINBOW!!!

 

Let's Get Started with Pale Pink!

Soft pinks are restrained, requiring a light hand and the ability to hold yourself back from dipping your #10 brush in the mangenta too many times. It requires a bit of dilution. A bit of grey or black or blue to calm down. A bit of desaturation. Restraint. This is incredibly hard for me!

SALMON!

{our color hostess today is Jazmin! What fun is in store for you at the intro to SALMON (the color, not the fish, at Syrens Idyll?}

 

salmon artwork, 5x8" moleskine, stamping ink, eraser stamps, pitt pen

the background is stamped with eraser stamps my daughter and i made this week, and then smeared with color using little cats eye stamp pads {aimee of artsyville created this cool way of doing backgrounds with stamping ink, see the tutorial at artsyville}

I'm so glad to be building another rainbow with you all. It's a great way to get started when sitting down to work!

I am really enjoying seeing what each color host shares. Love the pale pink mandala. I finally drew my first one a few days ago.

My first post in my new blog . Thank you Tammy for hosting such fun challenges.
