while browsing through some artwork i kept from my school days, i discovered this little painting. i used gouache paints for it.
the task was to use a color palette typical for each of the four seasons and to make one painting per season. this one here is my "summer" painting (with the saturated colors as we typically find them in summer). i'm sure you could've told which season is portrayed here without me giving it away, right?
the scene i came up with that would depict "summer" to me is of a warm, quiet, peaceful evening–perhaps in august–with laundry drying in the warm breeze. this is how i remember summers to be like, growing up.
does this also remind you of summer?
what would you paint if you were to portray what a typical summer day feels like to you?
