sometimes the answers are simple

seuss-green
Continuing the summer of colour challenge at Twinkle, Twinkle with more digiart and another favourite quote from Dr Seuss – you can see my first piece in the series here.

This week the colour challenge was green with a bonus challenge to add some citron. I’m enjoying these challenges and restricting myself to using only the colours in the challenge.


I'm doing all of my pieces using Photoshop Elements to create digital artpieces. I want to try using different tools and techniques each week in this challenge.  This piece started with some photos I took of atolls from a plane window flying over New Caledonia.  I then used the gradient tool to add layers of green and also the citron.  I used the dissolve blending mode to create the spattered effect.  The font is myriad.

Helena, this is awesome! Before I read what you wrote, I was really looking at it and thinking it was water with the sun reflecting off of the ripples. I like that you curved the words to match the landscape. Beautifully done!
