Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge continues with her color series – this week it is pastel colors.
Some flowers are bright, while others have muted colors. Most marigolds are bright, but these are soft yellow and white.
Dahlias come in all colors – some are bright, some are light.
Artists experiment with all kinds of color schemes. These are some pastel colors in artwork.
