So my latest challenge started last week on Twinkle Twinkle Like A Star (also see my previous post) called Summer of Colour 4. I came across this on facebook (as you do) and I knew I had to join. The colour challenge last week was Aqua, Yellow with a dash of Pink.
The first photograph shows what I did initially but I wasn't happy with it as it just needed 'something'. The second photograph is the finished piece. I'm much happier with that version. I can't wait to see what this weeks colours are going to be.
Finished piece but upside down - I like it this way up or should that be down :)
The other items I made are some Artist Trading Cards for trading in a swap I am hosting at a gallery in Altrincham Manchester UK. I'm a volunteer there and have been given the grand title of ATC coordinator. I've found that ATC's are not so widely known in the UK and not something that is known in the art industry - the concept of "trading" art is not understood and 'artists' don't seem to be able to grab the concept. I think it's a great way of owning an original piece of artwork and the best thing is it is open to everyone and doesn't require lots of expensive tools.
Here are a couple of the ATC's I made this weekend. The one in the middle I made into a Father's Day card for my dad as they are the perfect size to put onto a card.
And finally I'll leave you with a picture of a canvas I finished this week. It's not very big and the colour is more minty green than blue/green. The hearts and 'follow your heart' are both made with air drying clay.
Apologies for the long post but I wanted to do a catch up. I promise my next post won't be as long. Hope you've all had a good weekend.
