Color Your World …… Differently

I don’t know about you but, even though I have every color imaginable in both inks and paints, I find that some of them rarely  get used.  Anything pastel, forget it, my brightly colored paint tubes are still full.  I’m an earth tones and jewel tones kinda artist.  On the other hand I’m sure there are those of you that wouldn’t dream of choosing a Burnt Sienna, or a Raw Umber.  Good thing everyone has such different color pallet favorites or the world of art would all look the same.  So todays challenge is to Step Outside Your Box and into a box of different colors.  Use colors that you wouldn’t dream of using any other time.  What you choose to make with these colors is entirely up to you, go and create!

    Although I love the 60’s, I am not a fan of the colors. My piece did not come out as well as expected, but I did do my best for the theme.

    I went way outside my normal zone (if there is such a thing!!). This challenged rocked my socks off… and really surprised my DH!

Whats This All About

Each week a new challenge will be posted. Your task is to then go create!!! When you're done, upload a photo of it to your own blog or website. Then post a comment here with a link to your photo so that we can all see what you've created. WARNING: THIS IS A FLOURISH FREE ZONE!!!!! I love flourishes just as much as the next artist, heck, I've even got one tattooed on the top of my left foot. However, flourishes seem to be IN everyone's box these days. Since this is an OUT of your box challenge, lets refrain from using them for these challenges.
