Color Challenge: Week 2

"Hogs and Kisses" is the final result for this week's color challenge - "raspberry red".

Another play on words, this mixed media painting was created using only red, black, and white. Paired with last week's painting ("Ewe Are My Sunshine"), I'm starting to see a pattern develop... I guess this challenge is bringing out a love of livestock I never knew I had!


  1. How did I miss your entry from last week? I must scroll down and tell you how much I like it in just a moment, but while I'm here I have to extole on how fantastic I think this piece is ::grin::

    Great use of the colour, of course, but on top of that I adore your illustration style. Quirky and charming, along with the play on words. Lovely stuff.

    I particularly like the texture and depth you've given the work, forcing the viewer to look more than once, something that is always good for the eye.

    Thanks so much for sharing. I'm looking forward to seeing your answer to the next challenge.

    (holding her breath awaiting the announcement of the next colour :D)
