Tinged Blue {by Victoria Wilding} with Seth Apter stamps


Hello everybody

Victoria again with you at the moment and I am so excited to share with you my challenge for the Tinged Blue matter. Blue is certainly one of my go to colors for creating and options closely in a lot of my makes, in order quickly as I noticed this matter, I knew I’d be diving in to discover Surf’s Up in additional element.Dounia’s introduction to the Tinged Blue matter gives an awesome overview of Surf’s Up color concept and present’s the nice number of color variations you may get from a single color. 

I have been eager to create some artwork for a field body I’ve had hanging round, for effectively over a yr, so determined to create a challenge utilizing that. Creating a chunk of wall artwork and not using a particular ultimate hanging location in thoughts, I needed to maintain issues as impartial and easy as doable, in order that it could meld properly with a spread of inside decor. I made a decision to create a collection of background papers, which layered a spread of the color mixes and use these to create some butterflies, offering a contemporary twist on a specimen show field. 

The completely different components of this challenge have been so pleasing. Easy, uncomplicated and playful artwork which was the grown up model of these color mixing courses manner again in junior college! I like the visible texture the stamping creates when mixed with the completely different color mixes. So let’s check out these colors in additional element.

To create my printed papers I chosen my PaperArtsy merchandise, a mixing palette and a small gel plate and brayer. Seth Apter’s designs are good for including summary background particulars so as to add visible texture with out detracting from the primary topic of a chunk, so his stamp units ESA35 and ESA36 have been a pure alternative for this challenge and helped tie my challenge into the quarter’s theme. With their mixture of strains, circles and tiny textual content the stamps present the proper delicate background texture for butterfly wings which do not deviate too removed from natures markings. I additionally chosen Sara Naumann’s stencil PS122  to hint my butterfly shapes. 
I used to be tasked with creating a spread of various tones with impartial color mixes, however since I am all the time eager to push the boundaries, I made a decision to go for a colored gray and colored impartial as my mixing colors. The PaperArtsy Fresco End Chalk Acrylic’s I chosen (Surf’s Up – FF146, Stardust – FF222, Nougat FF39) push the color mixes in direction of the blue-green area of the color wheel.

Color swatching and mixing colors is such a good way to get the artistic juices flowing and spark concepts. Some time in the past I began to maintain a color journal for this very motive, so earlier than cracking on with my challenge, I made a decision to take a better take a look at among the mixes my three colors would create and check out the outcomes on paper, in my journal. 

I squeezed out small blobs of every color into my mixing palette and added various quantities of Stardust and Nougat to Surf’s Up, mixing with my paintbrush. 

These are among the swatches I created from these mixes. The swatches on the highest row are the pure colors, straight from the bottle, with the 2 rows beneath exhibiting the combo of Surf’s Up with every of the extra colors in various portions. The swatches to the left have the least quantity of the 2nd color added, with the swatches on the precise of the web page having probably the most quantity added. You’ll be able to clearly see that as extra of the 2nd color is added, the color hue of the blue modifications, with Stardust creating blue-grey tones, while Nougat creates a softer, muddier hue which leans in direction of sea inexperienced.

I can by no means resist bringing some fairly to my color swatching, so to see how the completely different mixes play collectively, I created some fast free florals on the adjoining web page. The combo of darker and lighter tones work so properly collectively and create sufficient selection to present the composition depth. I used to be assured that they have been going to create a color scheme pleasing to the attention and restful sufficient to make a pleasant inside piece of artwork.
