This week’s Mixed Media Monday challenge is blues and purple. Blues are easy. Water came to mind immediately. But the purples … a lily floating on the water. Perfect!

I painted the water in a variety of blues — some almost verging on green. Then I cut and tore pieces of purple mulberry paper into petal shapes and glued them in place. Finally, I added shadows and highlights on the water and petals. It was fun to play in blues and purples — two of my favorite colors.
