This an Instagram ten-day challenge! I am nearly there now with just one day to go! I hope you are enjoying my journey through colour (in the landscape)
Day 9: Of the #tendaychallenge, exploring my theme Colour in landscape. Having done the basics of a) thinking, b) drawing and I went one step further and actually planned some palettes in advance. As with any cooking experiment you start with an idea, then eliminate and then add in. So here is the outline of the ideas and playing with swatches of colour – mainly yellows for one and mainly blues for the other.
I never quite manage to stick to the palette and bring in a other colours, but it is a good start!
The other thing that makes colour swatches look so different from the actual painting is the dominance of one colour family and the elimination of the white background.
Tomorrow is the last day of the Ten Day challenge and I have just managed to complete another painting in time! Thank you for reading this blog!
