Or do you use different colours depending on the theme?
This time, for "Art Journal Journey" where the theme is "Winter Wonderland", instead of my normal practice of using every colour in the crayon box, I used a restricted wintry colour palette.
Here are some try-out colour samples in my Art Journal.I love making samples.
The restricted colour materials I selected -
a very, very small selection of oil pastels,
my trusty watercolours
and some torn-cut white 4x4 inch paper squares.
I painted a selection of square paintings with the idea of joining them together like a painted patchwork to make a whole piece.
Joining as a patchwork didn't work very well.
Here are a few of the successes.
I plan to frame these, either in groups of three as here, or singly as a set.
The Tower Three
The Castle Three
Would you like to see each square individually?
The bare tree
The holly leaf
The grey castle
The winter flower on the wall
The tower in the snow
