the ugly color game continues {and i miss summer already}

posted in: digital art, my creations | 1

four.webI don’t know what my fascination is lately with working with colors I don’t like. I guess I’m trying to get outside of my comfort zone a little. If I didn’t force myself to do this occasionally then everything I create would end up in shades of blue, purple, green and black.

These colors remind me of the summer backyard section at Target. You know, the area with all the colorful plastic drinkware, and trays, and lawn chairs and whatnot. Maybe it’s wishful thinking. I’m pretty sure everything in that section is on clearance by now. Summer is officially done for around here. I hate waking up to dark windows and stepping barefoot onto a cold floor. Why not dream about it just a little more?

  1. I absolutely love this post.. I read the one before it and I totally get what you mean about colors being subjective.. I was just drawn to this particular post because it reminds me of everything I loved in this post that I made in August http://www.tenpennysplendid.com/2011/08/late-summer-table.html ..I just think its amazing that it’s almost exactly the same colors only I think my green was a little cooler. You make beautiful palettes even when you hate them! 😉
