Summer of Colour Week 6 - Raspberry, Tangerine and Lemon

That's 6 weeks of summer come and gone already and I think we've had about 4 days when it was warm enough to sit in the garden. Sigh. Still, on the plus side, if it was hot everyday then I'd never get any art done!

Summer of Color 2014 Week 6+Nicola McLean
ACEO Landscape in gouache
This week's colours were the perfect summer colours for finishing off my series of ACEO landscapes/seascapes with a sunset sky.  I'm sure it was raspberry when I started - I think it may have made a fruit salad with the tangerine and it's ended up a little bit mango! 

The colour prompt was:

Raspberry, Tangerine and a pop of Lemon
That's the challenge over for another year. But before you go off to the Summer of Colour blog, Flickr or Facebook page, here's a quick recap of the last 6 weeks:

Thanks very much for popping by and thanks to Kristin for being such a wonderful host again this year.
