October Colours – Yellow

thanks to City Sonnets for hosting October Colours and letters https://citysonnet.wordpress.com/2020/10/01/october-colors-and-letters-2/

I love autumn colours and I had every intention of posting all the yellows of Autumn in a future post but when this challenge came up I decided that today was as good a day as any. Some of these photos were taken in the neighbourhood parks and others were from my walk through High Park yesterday.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Yellow

…thanks to Amanda for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge

Yellow is the colour of friendship but a baby’s room painted yellow makes them cry. I love the psychology of colour.FDF78783-39-D3-4-C7-D-840-D-940358864-E1-B

365 Days of Art – Yellow

….day 90

A few days ago Carla Sonheim posted a prompt. It was a quote from the artist Pierre Bonnard. I have to admit that I had never heard of him before but he managed to make a living from his art in the early 1900s right up to the 1940s while living in France.

The quote was “One cannot have too much yellow”.

I decided to take a page of one-liner drawings and add some colour with paint and collage. I painted the background with yellow watercolours and then I cut up paper to add texture and visual interest to the flowers. After that I took markers and conte pencils and added more lines and squiggly detail.IMG_1448

The Daily Post Photo Challenge – Yellow

…..amidst all the red, green, silver and gold of the season the challenge was to photograph something yellow Daily Post Photo Challenge

In setting up a still life composition for a recent art assignment I noticed that all the pieces of fruit had undertones of yellow. The lemon in the middle comes forward because of the bright yellow.
