Sometimes I feel the need to force myself to unclench, and let go of perfectionism, and just create as if I were a child again. This does not come naturally to me, but at the same time I'm often drawn to art created this way. So for this week's challenge I roughly tore out pieces from my collection of old papers, the rough shape of a head and dress, and created and painted a girl in one of my journals, with wings she's feeling intimidated about using.
I love the old papers against the bright pink and orange, the winning colors for this week and ones I wouldn't normally think of using together much - that's the beauty of challenges like Summer of Color that force us out of our comfort zone a little. Her wings were created using white encaustic wax.
