Summer of Colour & Less is More

Good morning you all. After days of rain, cold and wind, it seems to be a really hot and sunny day out there. On Staurday we were freezing with just 11°, today it's already 24° and it's still early. Today is Monday, and is time for the *Summer of Colour* again, hosted by Kristin. This weeks *task* was to use pink in all its variations. I painted 3 pictures in all, one of which I showed on Friday for *Paint Party Friday*
The first one was inspired by a Beatle's song again, *Let it me*, so I painted a pink madonna complete with the text of the song, which is a song I like very much.



The second picture is another pink lady, who forms the right part of the triptych.

And here are all three pictures together.

I used a mixture of tempera, acrylic and metallic paints, and I think I have now painted enough pink to last for a while....

And as I had some time yesterday I made a card for the *Less is More* challenge, in the hope that I have followed the sketch this week correctly and will not have to sit on the naughty step again....


So, that was it for today! Have a great day, take care, and thanks for visiting!
