Summer of Colo(u)r - week one



It's that time of year again - Summer of Colo(u)r is here! (Or rather, summer is in the northern hemisphere. Here in Australia it's winter, but we can still have some fun with colour, can't we?) Join in the fun for the next few weeks. Each week a basic palette is given from which you can create in any media you like. 

This week is two blues and a green. I put together a very quick page as it's a busy week for me. You can see how quick it is in the time-lapse video below - a mere 18seconds! Which translates into less than ten minutes in real time. You can fit art into the odd moments if you really try :)

The dark blue across the middle made me think of a wave, so the journalling says 'Sometimes I feel adrift… but feelings can lie.' I might feel adrift, but in truth I am always anchored.

  1. I couldn't see the video, probably because my so-call plugin is not working but the piece is wonderful, I see it more of little creature in there trying to sail calm water but it's not what meant, I guess this can be interpret in other ways.

    anyway, have a lovely day.

  13. I was so impressed with this mixed media beauty. I loved it because it was both realistic and abstract. I hope you know what I mean and maybe you planned it that way. It is wonderful and so expressive. I love your explanation of the journaling, too.
