I like bright colors, that's a given. But i also like to make pieces with deliberate "color stories", like these cools, blues, purples and greens. We're all drawn to a specific palette, that's what makes our art unique. The color choices we make are just as much the "art" as well as the finished work.
It's very challenging for me to not grab my "same old, same old" colors when i am consciously working with a specific palette! It's fun to look back and see the "artful color play" and process that has made me the artist i am at this very moment in time.
So now i'll grab a cup of cawfee, a journal, some "color makers" (paints, markers, collage, crayons, pastels, etc) and start creating my next brilliant stories.
In January, i'll be starting a small, brand new journal for just this activity, and would love if you did the same! Let's try it out and get started right here. Happy "art play day" to you!
"ARTFUL COLOR PLAY" PROMPT: Make one journal background page just using blues, purples and greens with watercolor or acrylic paint.
