Summer of Color - Week One

Kristin posted the Week One colors for the Summer of Color Challenge on Monday and now, three days later, there are already 64 linkups!!  Yup, this is a fun summer party! 
The featured colors are turquoise and yellow with a splash of pink.  I envisioned these colors in stripes because of a summer polo shirt I have.  Perfect for canoeing down the river like the people in my repurposed book! 
This girl is gesso white but she still probably has more color than me - I usually win all "pale" contests in the summer!  It was never fun to win the "whitest legs" when I was young but I'm banking on less wrinkles as I'm growing older. . . hopefully! 
Linking to Summer of Color,

Beautiful, I especially love the use of a greenish blue towards the lemon yellow and the pink challenging them. Lovely work.

She is strong and so well painted. I will try to get in on the SOC this week. Not much time for me.
Have a happy weekend

Love, love, love those colors! They really speak of summer, don't they?! And I know all about being pale in the summer. Everyone in my family got tan, but I burned and peeled... Now I mostly stay out of the sun. Your girl is beautiful!! xoxo Silke
