Blogtoberfest ~ day ?
I have been trying to break free of my usual color scheme. It is not easy.
My home is painted ginger root, my accents are always red and orange. I have been living with this color scheme for about 20 years now. I don’t know if I will ever be able to break free of it. It’s just kind of who we are now….
Interestingly, most of my art is always on the warm side….until now.
I am trying to break free…if it can only be through my art, then so be it…
Purples and blues. I would never think to combine these colors together.
I will be honest, it’s a bit on the wild side for me. I may be a bit conservative when it comes to color…
So it was decided. My goal was to use these colors in my art exercise..
Here is what happened….
Colors used ~
- cobalt teal
- napthol red
- naples yellow
- titanium white
- mars black
Some fun mark making in above colors and then painting out space around into some standard shapes.
Obliterating all…and coming up with something new, but still within the same color scheme.
All of the above pieces created on small 8′ by 10″ inch watercolor paper. Constantly reminding myself to let go and loosen up..its only paper.
Big ideas…small committment. Explore and see if your idea is worth committing more time and energy to..
Next time I am going to try and shake it up a bit more. Less Tapestry and Blooming Blue. More Greenleaf and Natural.
Love to hear and see some of your fav color combinations!
