I can't believe we have been doing this for 3 weeks already!! It's been good so far, seeing everyone else lovely work! I love going to each page and seeing how creative everyone is!!
This week the colours were plum, lavender and grey.....these are more my kind of colours!! Purple is one of my faves along with red! I love anything brightly coloured!! So the challenge for this week was to choose what to actually do with the colours!!
I've had this little guy sitting in my art stash for a while! To be honest I forgot about him for a bit but I found him when I moved again this year! I thought what better time than to try and give him a make over than now?!? I decided to use Gaudi as my inspiration again (I do love his work) and drew out a pattern of mosaic style squares on the piggy!
I had to mix the colours myself, which I have to be honest I'm not great at. I just mixed a lot of blue and red together to get the plum then added white to that to get the lavender colour.
Strangely enough it was the grey I had most trouble with! At first it was too dark and then it was too light. I finally finished with this shade although I'm not 100% happy with it as it feel alike it has an odd blue tinge too it. I don't know if this is because of the colours it is next to or because I didn't prime him first!!
Overall I'm pretty pleased with how he looks apart from the odd blue/grey grout colour :-P I even used a darker grey on his eyes so that I stuck completely to the colour scheme. I'm off now to have a nose at all the lovely stuff that has been posted already....see you there!
P.S As you can see i have bright red glasses and lime green nails.....bright colours are definitely my thing!
