Week Five: Wild n' Reckless!

"E"
8 x 8 Canvas Flag

It's week five of The Summer of Color 2: Ice Cream Inspirations and our latest challenge is to create a piece of art based upon the cool and crazy colors found within Wild n' Reckless sherbet . . . .

I loved playing with these colors, and knew early on that I wanted to bring out the varied hues in the "flavor" through the strands of her hair. If she looks familiar, it may be because she was based upon this piece I recently did for Paint Party Friday. She was created using a combination of acrylics, Caran D'ache watercolor crayons, pencil and various metallic and gel pens. 

Can you beleive it? We're now on to our last color prompt, the bold and beautiful . . . . . okay, you can just look up . . . .

Ice Cream kisses,
Kristin xo
