This month her challenge to us is to think about how the change of seasons affect our choices when creating. Like we pull out our summer wardrobe, do we pull out or summer colors?
I love all colors and there are some I use all year long, but I also don't make a big change in wardrobe from season to season. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we don't experience much extreme weather. Winter requires a coat and summer (usually and hopefully) doesn't.
But even though I still find my art is influenced by summer. I think the added hours of daylight have a big effect on me.
Green is about my fav color and I use it alot. And when it's sunny outside I think I tend to reach for lime green often.
In the summertime the trees in my art are full of bright green leaves , in the fall the leaves in my art reflect the fall colors, and in winter the trees in my art are bare branches.
My art is heavily inspired by nature, and the seasons have a direct effect on what I see in nature. I love to check out a few favorite trees each season and witness the beauty of each unique season
Looking through my current art journal I find some definite influences in different season. For example, a page created this month, a summer or tropical theme, bright colors:
Thanks for the inspiration Michelle!
