Documented Life Project Week 3

January 17

Art Challenge: Color Wheel

Journal Prompt: "I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way." ~Georgia O'Keefe

This week was a challenge for me - I just couldn't achieve the colors I saw in my mind.  After a few do-overs, I ended up with this. I blended acrylic paints from red through the color wheel to violet, then sprayed some inks in places to enhance the colors. When I applied gesso through a harlequin stencil, some color seeped through to color the gesso.  I used a sprayed scrap of paper for the quote and cut it up to glue in place. The color wheel is a computer printout.  For the planner section, I punched numbers out of an old calendar, colored the circles with watercolor crayons and wrote details of the week in white Uniball Signo pen over black paint.
