WHERE DID SPRING GO?
 
 
I love this colour and use it often in a lot of my pieces but as mentioned in one of my posts when using it against the blue / green it changed colour and looks more yellow than apple/lime green.  I too doodled and came up with this which is really just a design that evolved.  I named it as above as we seemed to go from winter one day to summer the next and there was no "inbetween" season.  With all this, we are now going through a terrible drought, so what was green is now slowly turning brown!  Thanks you - a great colour to work with.

  1. Those poor leaves really look as if they are starting to droop in the drought, Patricia. I love curves so this appeals to me. The quilting around the leaves made me think of the Fever Tree and the leaves quivering. I think the colours are fairly similar too, aren't they?

  2. I like your colour choices to go with the apple/lime green. I've no idea what the Fever Tree is like, though they do make a very good tonic! I agree with Hilary, lovely curves.

  3. In Eastern Canada we rarely get a long, lingering spring. The poor tulips are blasted with heat soon after they raise their lovely heads. Applaud your choice of colours. Enlarged, I would love to see this design made into a pillow.

  4. Nice balance in your composition, and I like the veining in the leaves. It would enlarge well.

  5. If those leaves could only talk! Such expression.I really enjoy these challenges just to see the colour combination, yours is so yummy.

  6. I too like the turquoise with the green. When I first saw it, my first thought was where is the green? I'd read the green as a yellow next to the turquoise and it was only when I looked more closely that I realised my eyes were deceiving me! It think it is a difficult colour to work with - it all depends on what colour you put it next to.

  7. Amazing how this happened! The blue has totally changed the colour!

  8. I love the way this colour interacts with others. Your colour choice for the veining is similar to my own but your background colour really makes those leaves stand out!

  10. All said ... I agree, I love the use of your other colour with the apple green. It just shows how different we see colours as I would have called it teal. Your 'shadow' quilting around the leaves is perfect and I agree it is a subject matter that could 'grow'. (excuse the pun). An update on the weather in Patricias area .... they are predicting a heatwave this weekend!
