I started this picture with the intent of using charcoal gray and pink for the Summer of Color challenge. I found this really challenging, because I like to use every color under the sun in my artworks. It was hard to stick with a planned color scheme.
I also struggled with adding too much stuff and the page getting too chaotic. I kept pushing and pulling, adding more details and wiping them out with white paint.
The quote for Color this Quote at Artists in Blogland is:
"The sun is shining...That is the Magic. The flowers are growing--the roots are stirring. That is the Magic. Being alive is the Magic--being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me--the Magic is in me. ...It's in every one of us." The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgeson Burnett
I used part of the quote in my art journal page!
Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!
