Summer of Colour - Week 3

Actually finishing earlier this week, here are two pieces completed for the Summer of Colour challenge using two purples and a yellow.  The first one I use the purples with just a touch of yellow and the second one uses a wash of yellow over the entire painting, apart from the reserved shapes, with more layers of yellow in some selected areas.

I couldn't choose a favourite, so I am including both!

















Here are the mixes I used:  The darker purple is ultramarine and magenta, the lighter purple is cerulean, magenta and white and the yellow is cad yellow medium with a little white.

absolutely wonderful!

SMV said...

Oooh, Rolina, the mostly blue/purple one is delicious! It absolutely resonates with me and I love it. The yellower one is gorgeous in its own right but there is something about the bluer one - I love it to pieces!

GlorV1 said...

I like what you've done with the colors. Very nice job.

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

both are lovely :D

the pink snuck in the mix really pops against the other colours :)

Rolina said...

Thanks everyone! I think the mostly purple one is my favourite, the more I consider them.



Lori Saul said...

GORGEOUS!!!!

I like the first one better but only because it has more purple.

They are both extremely successful and vibrant. <3

Chris Lally said...

They are both so interesting and creative, but I really love #1.

Rolina said...

Thanks everyone - it looks like No.1 is the favourite!

debs14 said...

I can't decide which one I love most! I think maybe the first one wins, I love those little 'pops' of yellow.

Lovely vibrant color in your pieces!

denthe said...

That darker shade is so gorgeous! Love both of these, and I really like that texture. Is it canvas?

Win Dinn said...

I can see why you couldn't decide which you liked best, Rolina - lovely, both!

Rolina said...

Thanks so much everyone for your very kind comments.

Denthe, yes it is canvas, just taped to a board.

Valerie said...

I like both :-)
Very vibrant colors!

Salla said...

Cool paintings, both of them, but I do have a favourite and that is the mostly purple one. There's a magical feel to it, like someone said before. Makes me think of a a warm starry night. Thanks for popping in and commenting in my blog!

Indira said...

Both are stunning! such a visual treat!

Jenny said...

Denise Price said...

Sometimes when I'm working with a color combo, it's hard for me to decide which color to emphasize and which one to use as an accent. Why did I never think of doing what you have done here--making two different pieces in order to try it both ways! Thanks for the idea. :)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I simply ADORE your abstract art. You make the very best abstracts. And I would never be able to choose, either.
