Colors of Summer - Week 1

Colors of Summer - Turquoise / Citron Green
It's finally here - Summer of Color 2013 hosted by the fabulous Kristin on her blog (here).  This summer is artist's choice in color - meaning we vote on two colors the week before and majority rules.  This week is turquoise and citron  green (Kristin has examples of these colors here.  Because I am working on my "faces" right now - I chose to paint this young woman with peacock feather hair.  I am really enjoying drawing and painting faces - right now I am working on getting rid of some of my "outlining" and using shading and color to define edges.  Of course, I am always working on features.  Hope to get some children's and men's faces in soon as well.  It's amazing how practice dispels fear of trying something.  Not perfect - but then it never will be!!!  Happy arting - have a blessed and art filled day!
