Summer of Color- Pink Lemonade

Happy Monday- I'm actually submitting my entry for the Summer of Color early (at least, early for me;)) this week!  It's another "do ahead" page for the traveling sketchbooks- possibly my January entry for Nicola since she's in Australia and it's summer for her that month!  Anyway, I created a landscape of sorts out of zinnias with a strawberry sunrise-ish sky with one of my joie de vivre figures- the prompt this week was strawberry lemonade, so I thought it would be a fun take on the theme!
Try to get by the Summer of Color, last week we had almost 100 entries for this fun challenge, or better yet, enter one your self- you have till Sunday to get it in!

How late can one person be and still be ahead of themselves? I am not sure, but I know I had a computer meltdown, then went out of town all in one week. I personally like what you did with pink and yellow. As you read, I have a thing about strawberries being red. That doesn't discount the fact that I love your color combination and your painting. It is incredible.

Joanna said...

How pretty, I LOVE the perspective with the huge flowers and tiny girl. Very effective.

denthe said...
