Theme Thursday Challenge - Favorite Colors



This week for the Theme Thursday Challenge we were to use our favorite color[s] in a piece of art work. Now that is a hard one because I have rarely found a color I didn't like. I can't wear all the colors but I enjoy painting with them or seeing them out in the universe. My favorites change according to time of day, emotions, and whatever my current "thing" is.

One constant is the blue family. Blue makes everything look good. The other is red. Everyone looks good in red. All the different variations are just fun. Orange is a favorite highlight color. I find I use more and more of it. Tonight I felt like the blue family. I love the turquoise blue. I collect turquoise colored glass. It just looks so beautiful with the sun steaming through it. I guess that would be my inspiration.

I chose an image of Maud Fealy and digitally manipulated a rather plain background I slapped together with a few colors of paint and scanned. I tried to surround her with all the rich reds and pinks and then added a little purple to top it off. These are the colors I am feeling today.
