Let your art guide you - weekly challenge

Poppies are so beautiful - but you cannot pick them and put them into a vase! This painting is called "Poppy girls", and somehow i felt drawn to deep and passionate red. The week's been hot with tension for me, lots of work, difficult things to deal with, hot and damp weather - and red seemed just the colour. Now i feel ready to plunge into deep blue water and relax.
What's your favourite colour at the moment?

Come and get creative with us at art n' sewl - we share our work every thursday.

    My color right now...I really love periwinkle for some reason. I need something light for the season. During Autumn, I go for the darker, more dramatic shades.
