Week 40: Paint or color with three colors you never use
My first thought when I read this challenge was, “I don’t want to do this” But then, hey, it’s not a challenge if it’s easy, right? And I do like a challenge! I knew instantly what colors I would use. For some reason, I rarely use purple! I don’t know why, I like purple, I just never seem to pick it up! I also never use violet. For the third color, I searched through my bin of acrylic paint and found the one that was the fullest. Viridian Green. Eck! What a combination! So here they are:
Looking at those three colors, I instantly though of irises. Probably the toughest flower to paint. I tried it. It didn’t work out too well, which is why you won’t see a picture of it here! No wonder I never use these three colors! I pulled in some white to get some different hues and just decided to paint and see where it took me.
So maybe I see a little sky????
A few upward strokes for some grass and stems – then some purple, violet and white dots for my flowers. I added a few puffy white clouds floating by.
So there is my experiment in 3 seldom used colors . . . I think it might be a while before I pull them out again . . . LOL!
Have a great week – I can’t wait to see which colors you all use!

It is quite lovely, don’t you think so now that it is complete? I agree about the Viridian Green too!!! It would have to be one of my least used colors!!
Thank you Paige! Yes, when it was all finished, I was pretty happy with it.
