Summer of Color - Green

The second week of Summer of Color challenge is green.  I have painted the mushroom houses with acrylic paints and am probably going to keep to the same size and style for each week so that I can somehow make them into a journal book. 

Just couldn't resist doing a Martha Lever style colour drop flower though in watercolours.  These challenges are really making me appreciate colour and how they are so different in different mediums.
Why not take a look at Kristin's blog on Monday to see what others have done or click on the flashing badge on the right.

  13. What a great idea to create a journal book of the Summer of Color. Why didn't I think of that? ;)

    Both these paintings are fantastic and as you said, using different mediums(media?) make a difference.
