Hello Yellow!

Here is a watercolor piece I did for yellow week over at Summer of Color! It was my first time playing with masking fluid (which at first did not work because I didn't shake the bottle!) I have a pretty busy week but I hope to do another yellow piece with metallic in it somehow, but I wanted to go ahead and post this one! I found with other pieces I've been working on, I was in the mindset that the ENTIRE thing had to be that color but I have seen so many great things with it just being the focal point. So I tried to do that here with the flowers :)

  
I love what everyone else has been doing! I can't wait to look at some more and I hope to have something else posted by the end of the week! Thank you Kristin for doing this, I am finding myself trying to think outside the box more and more and look at everything in the light of "how can I use that in art". I am trying to always think like that to open my mind to more possibilites! :)

<3 Kristin

Your yellow piece is so bright and cheerful - I love the free strokes in the flowers and your background is the perfect compliment for your pops of yellow. I look forward to seeing what you do every week. Thank you, xo

  9. I love the movement you gave to it with those swirls..
    I have tried masking fluid, so it is good that at least i know it needs to shaken before using it.
