For day two of my experiment I have colored in the inside cover of Daria Song’s ‘The Time Chamber’. The inside cover depicts a series of floral motifs, floating as bubbles around a fairy in an air balloon.
I deliberately limited my pallet to create an almost textile feel. The colours I chose for this purpose are dusky rose, orange, turquoise, and coeruleum blue. My secondary layer of colours is made up of gold, silver and bronze metallic. I have restricted my choice of media to felt-tip pens, which I purchased on a recent visit to ‘Michaels’ shop, in central Vancouver, Canada.
Colouring in this picture has made me reflect upon my own personal artistic influences. What inspired me to make the stylistic choices that I made instinctively throughout this process?
This thinking was inspired by a friend who pointed out there’s a distinct Art Noveau feel to my sense of colour/design as depicted here; there’s definitely a ring of truth to that.
Now that I’ve started reflecting on my own personal influences, I will be moving away from Daria Song’s wonderful creations with the purpose of designing my own.
My plan, for the next 26 days, is to look back, at one of my major artistic influences in turn, and create a piece of colour art inspired by them/it. I will then share here with you, my readers.
I hope you will continue to follow me on my journey. As always, thanks for reading.
