    building a rainbow {5 days of color} green or aqua

    [PAGE DOWN to ADD YOUR LINK to THE LINKY LOVE]

    We're building a rainbow, want to help?

    {the details of the challenge are here in this post}

    Suggestions: an art journal page, a sketch, a doodle, a painting, a mixed media work, embroidery, crochet in one main color.

    Here's where you go to add a link to your art for each color - there are linky lovies on each page.

    DECEMBER 1: RED or PINK

    DECEMBER 2: ORANGE or YELLOW

    DECEMBER 3: GREEN or AQUA

    DECEMBER 4: BLUE or PURPLE

    DECEMBER 5: BLACK or WHITE

     

     GREEN!

    {our color hostess for yellow is Carlene of Taylor Maide, go check out the intro to GREEN}

    9x12" watercolor paper, neocolors

    They're playing green day in a green house in a green neighborhood under payne's gray skies.

     

    AQUA!

    {our color hostess for yellow is Jazmin of syrens idyll, check out the intro to AQUA}

    5x8" watercolor moleskine, pitt pen, watercolor

    I drew a mandala with linear petals, perhaps metallic. To make it aqua artwork, I experimented by mixing about 8 versions of what I envisioned as aqua - unscientifically mixing various blues with various greens in my little palettes.

     

    For motivation today, go listen to the quick 5 minute talk at TED: Ric Elias: 3 Things I Learned While My Plane Crashed. And go hug your kids. {via tweet from @Anmano}

     

    Please post your link(s) to your artwork in GREEN and your artwork in AQUA (you can link twice, if they are in separate posts), as we begin creating our rainbow. {please link to the exact post, not the blog home page}

    Note: If you are linking to Flickr, make sure the photo is "public" or the link will not work. I've had to delete a few links to private Flickr photos.

    I'm digging the green houses of course, and the aqua mandala is great.

    I went outside and got creative with branches! Check out my greens at http://musingsonrealities.blogspot.com/2011/12/go-green.html
