I have signed up for A Year of Colour with ArtsyMama
Each month she has invited a guest artist to show a project using a different colour. There are lots of other blogs to look at and I have enjoyed looking around. I decided to have a separate art journal for it and this is it. I have since finished the cover with some more colour. I have done a couple of pages for blue (January) and a couple for pink (February) I am not really a pink person so have found it a hard colour to be inspired by. Elizabeth at About New York had a pink day the other day which I liked.
I love white gesso-the rough texture it gives a surface is so lovely to work on. I used dip pen and ink and watercolour pencil.
This is the back cover. The rainbow windmill at the top of the post is at school and, the other day, when out on a colour walk with the children, I realised I work in a pink school (you can just see the roof in the background) The nursery is a separate building and is blue.
