Summer Of Colour4 Week 2

So it's week 2 of the Summer of Colour 4 challenge over on Twinkle Twinkle Like A Star and this week I've made a couple of pieces both of them abstract.  One is an Artist Trading Card (ATC) and the other is a larger piece where I started out with circles which were supposed to have been abstract trees but ended up being some weird and odd looking alien birds - or at least that's what they look like to me.  

This weeks colours were Teal, Coral and a Dash, Splash or Splodge of White.  The coral colour came out rather orange on the ATC but I think I've got it a better shade on the larger piece.  The only thing I couldn't do was get the correct shade of teal to come through on the photograph.

I'm very impressed that you have two images for this week. I love the cityscape (have I said that yet?), and I think the birds are very cool :D

btw - I'm pretty sure you don't have this linked up to the SoC blog Anita :)

Fab pieces, both of them! My favourite is the ATC. The white elements remind me of Tove Jansson's electrical Hattifnatt characters - it could be a city full of them.

Oh I do like your art, especially the second one with the fantasy birds looking at the semi-circle with cogs below, very surreal, it's terrific. Isn't it strange how our art sometimes takes on a life of its own?

Super pieces, my fav is the first, it can be seen as lots of things, a city scape or pieces of fence on a beach with sea and sunset. Fab

Your alien birds are fantastic, but I also appreciate what I consider a cityscape. You make beautiful and moving art.

Wow I love both of these SOC pieces! The abstract ATC looks like a view of a city skyline on the water. The birds are so funky and fun! Great use of this week's colours!
