The colour prompt for the final
week at Summer of Color, is
Sage Green and Sepia.
I voted for this colour combination
but then struggled for inspiration, duh!
Then, I popped into a local charity/thrift
shop on Friday and, stuffed into a house
clearance box, found this wonderful vintage
and very used, very loved, and very large
paint palette - and it was all mine for £2.
You can tell how happy I am to have got it!
I'm going to put it on the wall in my newly
remodelled studio (ok, conservatory), as
a constant source of inspiration.
I love the colours and texture on both sides.
It got me thinking about the previous owner
of this palette, and I wonder what type of
painting he or she did.
So, suitably inspired I painted some old
tubes of paint onto my lined and gessoed
SOC Moleskine pages, and included the
quote by Pablo Picasso;
"Painting is just another way of
keeping a diary."
I have really enjoyed taking part in
this year's Summer of Color.
Big thanks to Kristin and to the other
artists who have left such lovely comments.
You are all an inspiration to me!
