Phewph...here I am again...'Tail-End Charlie'...(apologies Jenn)
All my good intentions to be ahead of the game this week seemed to disappear around Tuesday!
Hopefully Jenn at the Artist Play Room will be her usual wonderful, lovely host and let me nip into the room to join in the fun....even at this late stage.
Jenn decided for this week's theme we were to create a piece of art that celebrates our very favourite colour. This you would think might be an easy challenge, but once you really have to knuckle down and chose one particular colour it becomes very difficult....so I went with my initial first thought.
The colour that I would usually chose would be 'blue'.....
but then which blue to choose?
Oh my...but there are an infinite number of possible shades. Each shade of blue can be modified slightly by adding a new colour, the possibilities are endless. As far as we know, there are more than fifty thousand shades of blue. Air Force Blue, Celeste, Egyptian blue, Maya Blue, Royal Blue, and Ultramarine are a few.
(apologies for the photograph...unfortunately I couldn't take the photo in good light)
Then a friend (who knew that I was drawing the blue wren) brought me this photo from a magazine...
now let me tell you I haven't been able to snap a shot of this tiny wren myself because basically I'm hopeless...my camera just doesn't have a fast enough shutter speed...and this little chap doesn't sit still...ever!!!
But look at this shot!
I'd have been apoplectic if I'd managed to take this photo...I'd have been hyperventilating and shaking so much that it would have been a blur.
I can imagine how the photographer Barb Leopald must have felt knowing she had that shot in the bag!
So that's it for this week folks...I hope you've enjoyed visiting me...I know I've loved having you pop into my place. So why not nip over to Jenn's place to see all the stunning colours and amazing art work.
I'm sure you'll be inspired by what you see...they're such a brilliantly talented lot!
That's where I'm off to now...see you there
