Once again I'm too late to actually link up
with the Color Your World Challenge.
Maybe next time?
This month's challenge was to interpret red, white, and blue.
I didn't want to lump
all three lovely colors into one piece of art,
so I made three.
(No wonder I'm running late!)
"Painters use red like spice."
(Here's hoping that my red splotches
look more like paint and spice than gore.)
"The first of all single colors is white...
We shall set down white for the representative of light,
without which no color can be seen;
yellow for the earth;
green for water;
blue for air;
red for fire;
and black for total darkness."
~Leonardo Da Vinci
The quotation made me think of a prism--
a beam of white light fragmenting into every hue.
"Once in a blue moon."
~ colloquial expression
I need to find some sort of paper
that will not curl when I watercolor on it
yet not make my calligraphy ink bleed.
