Floating in blue



the weekly challenge from http://iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com/ is to use “something blue”.This was not easy for me; It has made me think a lot ……what if  i use blue fountainpan, blue color pencil etc. then i remembered I had blue acrylics laying around.

this is the result: I have colored the background in a mix of three colours blue diluted with some water. then i have tangled with black on it ,and highlighted with white gelpen. I think the tangles look like sea creatures floating in the ocean. the drawing is not of the highest quality but the exercise was fun.

I will keep it by this ensemble for this week,but there is more to explore that is certain; there are endless possibilities with color included and it makes the thinking more complex.

I now understand why beginners are advised to stick with black and white.




ps: i just have  noticed that i didn’t sign the drawing, must do that right away.

    It’s funny the way adding in color can add so many decisions, isn’t it? These look very nice. The little white highlights on the net tangle really make them stand out.

    I’m glad the challenge was fun for you – I think you could use this technique regularly and develop a very original style. Great start!
