Summer of Color 5 - Color by Number Challenge and Such

My, my, my... I found another challenge to try... I must have had a weak moment.
It promises to be great fun, though!  I had to dash through this week's challenge, though, because I am off to church camp in the morning, and the deadline will get here before I get back home.
The challenge - create art with three colors.  Two blues and a green.  Get it?  Color by number... hehe.  I love it... no, wait.  I hated it!!  I wanted so badly to add shadows with burnt umber or blacks or anything!

I struggled through it in record time because I had none to spare.  There is more motive to the madness that I can't share just yet, but I slung paint, and the rooster crowed in the morning sun, albeit a green sun.
I even cut loose and thumped some watery drops all around - that was EXTREMELY difficult for my oh-so-orderly self.  I wanted to wipe it off immediately, but I didn't.  Whew, that was tough, but it is starting to grow on me.
So here is Morning Calls-


Here were my colors-


Why don't you join in on the fun?  Check out the challenge at Twinkle, Twinkle.  I know we are going to have a great time!

  3. I love your painted rooster.

    It reminds me that roosters woke me nearly every morning for two years when I lived in the hinterland of Brazil ---well, except for those mornings when a donkey brayed me awake. Not being a morning person, I didn't appreciate the roosters at the time, but now I often miss the simple life I lived there.

  9. I have a friend who collects chickens and roosters. She would go crazy over this artwork. I also like the way you created this first SOC entry. That's something to really crow about (sorry, just had to).

  10. I LOVE THIS! (Yes, I shouted that out!) I have a flock of chickens, and my rooster is my special guy. His name is Ernest T. Bass, named after that quirky mountain man in "The Andy Griffith Show." All my other animals are named after folks in that show as well ---- every chicken and all three of the donkeys. Fun stuff.

    And I, too, am a child of the Most High God and soon-coming King. Hallelujah!

      God bless!

  11. This is beautiful. I love blues and green you chose. I love that particular verse and that you illustrated it with the cock crowing. I hope camp goes well.

  13. I love that you chose a subject that is not realistically these colors. It almost looks like a film negative.
