This Week, "Sea Green"!

Hi Everyone!

It feels like its been forever once again although it's only been a week! This week was a ridiculously busy one for me and I didn't think I was going to have the time to paint but sure enough, where there's a will there's a way!

This weeks Creative Colour Challenge was "sea green" with the option of using two other colours of your choice. The theme of "to the sea" was assigned as well. I had no idea what to paint really so I just mixed up my colours and let my mind and brushes wander, kinda like therapy at the end of my hectic week! Lol :)

Here's what I came up with:
Acrylic on canvas board
6"x 8"
I don't feel as though this piece is quite finished and every time I look at it, I see areas that I want to revisit and fix! We'll see what happens with it in the near future but for now, it is enough. ;)

Now to do some much overdue blog surfing and see what the rest of you have been up to! :)
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

  1. Oh wow... this is absolutely gorgeous. I love drawing curvy waves and you have done a beautiful job! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Gorgeous colors!--it looks like stained glass.

  3. Oh I love these colours, some of my favourites.
    I have loved all of your challenge pieces. So creative and vibrant. Just lovely

  4. Sorry for the delay in my commenting here. RL got in the way again.

    I love the deep greens you have in this one. I gave some thought on how you might think it unfinished. Perhaps the background is not working with the foreground as well as it could? The squares/checkers might work better if replaced with smaller swirls that echo the foreground? ::throws around ideas:: It is a nice piece of work with some beautiful colours. Diane says above that it looks like stained glass and I totally agree. It has that slightly stressed glass look (and in that case the background works well). Lovely as usual.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Gumnut, I totally agree with you about the background not working as well with the foreground as it should. I think that's whats bugging me. As well, it reminds me a bit of grafiti, like the waves are painted on a wall. Funny what you see when you stare at something long enough! :D

    Thanks for your comments everyone! :)
