The Summer of Color journey is proving to be more interesting with every color prompt. Not only is it fun, it is also proving to be a journey of discovery, finding colors..how they work in conjunction with each other, being inspired by the variety of art that we get to feast on every week...
This week, the colors are 'lime green' and 'purple', two colors that I really love and using them together was quite an experience. Looking for the right shade of purple or green, or, even mixing up both to make muddy color...
Well, as they say, "No mud, no lotus", so, even the muddy results of color catastrophes resulted in beautiful blooms!
I shall start with this sketch I did of the Indian girl in Salwar Kameez,
The sketch was at the beginning of the week, but as days went by, my mad, art-crazy heart was not satisfied and I wanted to make something more for the sheer joy of it. An old, empty matchbox soon enough became transformed by me into a tiny, lime green and purple shrine to Buddha.
I should show the rather 'wild' wild flowers I created...although it turned out to be not what I really wanted!
I learned this week that , however my work turns out,
“I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart.” as Vincent van Gogh said.
With lots of wishes for a happy, creative week to all of you!
