Summer of Colour WK2

Working on board this time, out of the sketchbook for a change, here is this week's Summer of Colour painting.  The colours we were to work with are two pinks and an orange.




















I have been using pastels and acrylics and these are my chosen colours: magenta, pale pink and flourescent orange.

It is a lovely colour-scheme, apparently a big hit in previous years, I can see why.

very nice! :D

pastels over the acrylics? do you have to spray them so they don't smudge?

I love your abstract work. I'm curious to see the evolutionary process. Keep it up :-)

Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments, everyone!

Jennifer, at the early stages of the painting, I let the pastel smoosh into the paint, but as it progresses, I begin to use fixative to stop smudging, especially as by this stage, I have introduced the charcoal lines.
