Today at Make it Colourful we have a fantastically fun challenge for you!! We want you to color a sunset with clouds!! Now, it’s really not that hard and there is plenty of inspiration provided from the Design Team … so you should give it a go! And um… in case you’re ready to throw something the shoe… is this when I mention it was my idea?
When I colored Precious… I coudn’t help but to use Annika‘s hair color combination for red. ;D It’s been one of my favorites lately! I gave Aidan a pinstriped suit to help brighten up all that black. I would have liked to have a fine-tipped white gel pen but the idea has come across. Then to compliment each other, I gave Precious white stripped elements to match.
The sunset was an interesting experience… and one that I had to use lots of photo inspiration from Google. I narrowed one down and started at the bottom with the yellows the gradually worked my way up to the blues. Between the two I added some purple for the transition. Once that part was done I went back in with a deep purple color and added the clouds. At that point it looked a little flat so I added some white acrylic paint to the clouds then went back in and colored in some oranges and yellows.
I honestly didn’t know if it was going to turn out and even amazed myself. I really liked how it turned out and hopefully will be brave enough to try it again! 😀 The colors I used are: BV23, BV25, BV29, V20, V25, V06, B000, B60, B63, B91, B93, B95, Y32, YR02, YR07, YR09, YR21, YR30 plus the white acrylic paint. Hope you like it and hope you’ll come play along with us this week!
