Color Challenge: Final Color & Wrap Up

This is the last week of Louise Gale's Creative Color Challenge. I have to say, this challenge has been more fun than a barrel of monkeys...

With that in mind, I created the lavender purple mixed media monkey painting above.

To celebrate the completion of the challenge I thought it might be fun to have a look at the entire series:

Week 1: Sunflower Yellow, Week 2: Raspberry Red

Celebrate Color!, Week 3: Turquoise Blue

Week 4: Sea Green, Week 5: Lavender Purple


  1. You did an amazing job with this challenge Kristin! What a wonderful set of artwork you now have, I look forward to seeing what you do with it!

  2. Kristin, they are all wonderful works of art. They would be a fun set to hang in a child's room.

  3. These deserve to be preserved in whatever way takes your fancy,but would make great Post Cards

  4. Hi! These are all so much fun! I love the monkeys and the ewe. And I love the "butter"fly below, so clever! You crack me up!

    And thanks for you sweet comments on my blog. The swirl painting i made my sister is 24" x 40". I loved working big, it was fun. And you should try the crackle paste, it works beautifully, just don't make the same mistake I did by painting on it too soon. I thought it was dry enough, but the paint softened it a little and got rid of some cracks...oops! I carved into it a little in that spot so it wasn't as noticeable...hopefully.

    Nice to meet you,

  5. I totally admire your work. It's cohesive, thoughtful, well designed and inspirational. I'm so glad I found you here :D

    I love your play on words and your skill with illustration. Monkey business lines up with the rest of the set as great work, and you've created a title page to tie them all together. Frame them all and put them up in your living room.

    And I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what else you are going to come up with, so keep it coming.
