"Art Journal Journey", hosted this month by Rosie, is asking for Circle Art.
I've painted a little train, it's powered by steam so it's mechanical and I also painted it with the computer mouse so that's sort of mechanical too, isn't it?
THE NIGHT TRAIN
And there are plenty circles here - the two wheels on the right and the other wheels - these wheels must be circles too, don't you agree? - otherwise the train wouldn't travel very far.

All the pens are in this bag and I take out three pens without looking.
If I like the three colours together I keep them, but if I don't (for example if the colours are too similar like two pale oranges) then I'm "allowed" to take out two more, but I can only use three of the five.
I also wanted the paintings to be abstract.
This is the very first one I made.
The pens chose two greens and a red. The purple colour inside the circley thing was made by painting green over red.
What do you think? Did the pens choose three good colours?
More experiments next blogpost - some good colour choices by the pens, others more questionable.
I'm also linking to "Mix It Monthly" where the theme is "Lyrics from a Song".
The song I've chosen is "The Night Train to Memphis" and if you want to be amused and cheered for a minute or so Roy Acuff is singing the song here.
