Summer of Colo(u)r - week 2


Week 2 of the Summer of Colo(u)r and the palette this week is 2 pinks + 1 orange. Love this hot combo :)

Again, I've made a little time-lapse video. Just love my Brinno TLC200 - it's a time-lapse camera that does all the work for you. You just set the time interval and the camera takes photos. When you download, it comes out as a video without any work on my part! Love it. Anyway, it's another quick page, no longer than 20 minutes.

The background is a gelli-print, which I find is a great way to get a lot of colour and pattern across a large area quickly. I used a stamp to put pattern down, printing with the paint I removed as well. This is a technique I like as it moves the paint around on the plate and creates a great layered look.

The journalling reads: We are all unique, each face as different as each sunset.

And here are some close-ups of the background pattern.

  2. my browser kind of sucks and refused to play the video but it's always interesting how people create patterns and textures using all kind of techniques and tools. I like the background texture and it's done just right.

    visiting from SOC, have a lovely day.

  14. Wonderful video and how nice that you like using your Gelli, something I still don't much care for, even after wanting one for nearly four years. It's a lovely painting and drawing.
