"Summer of Colour" - Green Piece #2



My second piece using green for the week 20th to Sunday the 26th. Included Citron to get "bonus points" and it turned out a really pleasing colour combination. I was floundering about for some nice thoughtful things to say in this piece and ended up using a Buddhist quote but I somehow feel this piece is so contrived. Sigh. Part of my "Bad Art Journaling Week" I suppose.


Background using Claudine Hellmuth's acrylic paints, 
stencilling with Lyra pastel chalk sticks
and shading with Caran D'ache Neocolor 1.


Thanks for looking!!

  5. I really struggled with green this week too. When I saw the prompt I thought I was good to go - and it just stalled.

    This is a great piece. Not bad journaling art whatever at all. I really dig it.

  12. I love this journal spread and the quote! My favorite part is the masking tape you used to pop your writing out. So peaceful and serene... Hugs, Jessi xox

  16. The background is intriguing - love the text peeking through. The girl's pose fits the quote perfectly and I don't see contrived, I see thought provoking. Keeping it all green takes the emphasis away from the details and puts it on the quote....
