Project 3 – Stage 4 Colour moods and themes – Exercise 2


I produced a collage of magazine cuttings to illustrate my chosen colour theme.  I love this combination of hot pink, red, orange, yellow, mauve and turquoise.  It is hot and sunny, vibrant and bold.

It might appear to some people as quite a childish mix of fully saturated primary colours but it makes my heart sing!  There is something very Mediterranean about the strength of the colours.  You need colours this vibrant when there is a lot of bright, clear light, especially when the sun reflects off the sea.

Here is my colour bag which includes buttons, knitting yarn, embroidery and tapestry threads, ribbons and felt.  A little bit of the warm sunny south in my dull, wet northern hemisphere work space.
