The real reveal is over on Brandi Hussey’s Brandigirlblog and it sure is full to the brim with wonderful colour. Brandi is celebrating the launch of her new book Understanding Color and I wasn’t about to miss the party! I was lucky enough to jump on the pre-order so I have a digital copy, and this week my hard copy came. I also had the treat of a palette print in blues and greens which I love and would look wonderful in any room in my home – how did she know!?
Here is my entry
I’m borrowing Brandi’s shot since she put the palette along side oh so nicely. I almost didn’t enter since I had a grander scheme in mind and time just ran away from me this week with plans changing on the fly. This is part of a new polymer series I’m working on. New textures, impressed in polymer, colourized and then resin overtop. Usually if you are working with resin the goal is to eliminate bubbles. I like the oddity here that the deep impressions allow for the bubbles to stay, I hope they appear as a feature. It is a great big mess of colour in my studio at the moment, but I really am liking how things are turning out, if I do say so myself!
Now I fully intended to use this palette, #2, for the challenge – isn’t it just stunning! That blue on the right end is very close to what I consider my very favourite blue.
I was most assuredly working in this vein, just didn’t manage to snap a picture in time for the deadline.
I’ve also been trying really hard not to forget that yellow, orange and red should appear in my work from time to time. I am certainly looking to my new book to help me along that journey as I would like to be more purposeful in my colour combining.
Thanks so much Brandi for letting me join in on the fun! I’m about half way through reading Understanding Color and I just love how accessible Brandi makes the theory. I’ve paused to digest a bit but am excited to have the resource at my worktable.
