The colour theme for this week's Summer of Colour is charcoal grey and pink, a combination I've been looking forward to.
This sketch of hydrangea flowers is a pen and watercolour sketch from my sketchbook, when we visited a National Gardens Scheme Open Garden event. The flowers were the lightest pinky-white with the colour increasing at the petal edges, and I liked the idea of using the sketch for the challenge because flowers are in my thoughts just now.
I changed the colour of the leaves and background to a light charcoal grey in Photoshop and added the double border.
This is a very personal grey and pink image, with the pink text added on Photoshop to my own black and white sky-scape photo, which was taken on my mobile phone at Southport a little while ago.
Neither of my images is very good artistically, but at the moment inspiration is rather lacking. Both pictures have turned out as reflecting the way we are feeling just now because our dear daughter died last week of a brain tumour and they are a little tribute to her. I hope you will find them acceptable.
