That is the color combination to use this week number 3 for Kristin's Summer Of Color Challenge. And let me say -this was a huge challenge for me because I am not a fan of purple. Matter of fact, I was lucky to have 2 different purple paints to use or I would have been making a trip to AC Moore!
The colors I worked with are: Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint-Permanent Violet Dark, Americana Acrylic Paint- Lavender, and Anita's Acrylic Paint-Banana Yellow.
And here is my journal page:
I am actually quite surprised it turned out so well! To get the brownish looking shading I mixed a bit of the yellow and dark purple. Other supplies: graphite pencil, gesso, Stabilo All pencil, rubber stamp (Tang Dynasty Writing- A Stamp In The Hand), Jet Black Staz-On Ink, sentiment (ARTchix Studio collage sheet), star stencil, glitter glue.
And now to something less colorful, but exciting as well. Earlier this week I received my complimentary issue of Somerset Studio July/Aug. because I had some art published for the black and white call for art challenge! Being such a lover of color this was another challenge for certain, but you know, once I started I couldn't stop! They have several more pieces of mine, so fingers crossed they'll appear in a future issue:)
These are the pieces in the magazine:
These canvases were totally inspired by Serena Barton whose style of wabi-sabi art I so love! I am only sorry that they omitted the credit I gave her for these pieces :(
To those of you visiting here-anyone else published in this issue? And also, to those of you who have been contemplating sending in some art, just DO IT!! It is impossible to predict what may get chosen so create from your heart and get to the post office!
In addition to Summer Of Color I will be visiting where I am also linking to: Art Journal Journey; Art Journal Every Day; Art It Friday-Show Your Face; and Paint Party Friday. Keep inspiring, and keep being inspired!
" Purple enhances creativity, clears the mind, calms stress."
I thought the purple came out really well too, and enhances it a lot. It's a great effort indeed. Congrats on your published work!ReplyDelete
I can not believe how many 'challenges' and other group activities you are involved in - how do you find the time? I really admire people who can do the collage effect to such good results as I mostly feel that mine look silly. I also like you submission to this week's SOC - have a good weekendReplyDelete

Wonderful work, Linda, and how wonderful to be published!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your lovely black and white art that was published. So glad I can say "I know this artist."ReplyDelete
I had even more trouble than you with my entry this week. At least you didn't have to start four times, or you would have been heading for more paint (grin). She's a genuine beauty, too, but personally, I think she's even BETTER than just good enough!.
YAY! Yay! Yay!!! I just got mine in the mail - I'll have to check it out. Congratulations!! Oh, and thank you for your sweet nail polish comments: I am trying for a little eye candy in case the art is boring, ha! xoReplyDelete
Congrats at having your work published. I love your SOC piece and I'm so impressed that you mixed the purple and yellow instead of just going for a brown. I think you should get a gold star for that.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on being published again Linda!!!ReplyDelete
Love your piece for SOC..... not a lover of purple either.
Congrats on getting published in Somerset! I love what you have done with this week's SOC, too.ReplyDelete
She is so gorgeous and her eyes are amazing!Beautiful work, my friend!ReplyDelete

Linda, I always enjoy your artwork. i think the purples you chose are spot on for me, as there is a warm and a cool. The gold is just right. Congrats on your magazine exposure. Keep well, Glo ZReplyDelete

Congratulations, Linda! I'm thrilled that I inspired you and appreicate credit for that. However, you have made this work entirely your own!ReplyDelete
Oh I love your SOC challenge piece... such bright happy art...lovely shades of purple.... you rocked this weeks colour combo Linda :)...and CONGRATULATIONS on being published...well deserved :)ReplyDelete
I like the saying which you've chosen.ReplyDelete
We women ARE truly good enough, just as we are.
I think that's obvious.
And your choice of purple sends me!
Congrats on being published! And I love your SOC-piece. She has such a wistful expression on her face, and the colours came out really well.ReplyDelete
You've done a great job with this weeks colours. I really struggled this week. Thanks for visiting my blog Anita - Itsamistry Design Studio #82ReplyDelete

Wonderful for You : ) Congratulations.I love all Your artwork,very talented indeed.I, being a lavender/purple lover do love Your pretty girl.ReplyDelete
I'm not a purple person but oddly it's fun to paint, don't know why. Maybe because it's intensive color...ReplyDelete
Congrats for public eyes to see your art!
(Sorry I'm late - we had a long weekend break near Helsinki...)
wonderful portrait! :)ReplyDelete
Love! Great work Linda and big congrats on the publication. Thank you for linking it up to Show Your Face last week, sorry I'm late coming around to leave some blog love! Thanks for the shout out too. KxReplyDelete
