Purple and gold…..

……is the theme this week on Mixed Media Monday .  Having struggled with this for most of yesterday I have come to the conclusion that I don’t ‘do’ purple!!  It’s not that it’s a colour I don’t like just can’t seem to use it! LOL!

Anyway not very happy with this, in fact it might well get ripped off the canvas and I’ll start it all again  but for now here it is…….

    Hi Donna – I know you struggled with this colour combination, but I think you actually came up with a wonderful piece. Put in a cupboard for a week, and then look at it again. I bet you like it more then. Personally I really like it, and think it works wonderfully! Diane

  9. Looks good Donna – lots of lovely textures on this one – I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

  10. This piece is just wonderful! Great colors and texture!

  11. I think it’s looking beautiful!

  12. Isn’t it funny how when we work out of our usual style, we don’t see the things that others see in it? I love the layers and textures, and the colors are vibrant, but fit the images really well. I agree that if you put it away and come back to it later, you might see it differently.

  13. Another great piece of art work Donna, love the colours, julia xx

  14. that necklace is SO you Donna! lol

  16. this is artwork and a beautiful design

  17. Gosh, what’s not to like about this canvas??? It sure looks wonderful to me 🙂

    I know how hard it can be when you don’t like something you’ve made – set it aside and try to learn from it, even if it’s what NOT to do next time!
    I like the texture and brightness!
