Artist's Play Room #53 ~ Creating A Colour Combination

I so enJOY playing with colour. As I thought about a colour and making up a name for it, I found myself envisioning the colour of the ocean. 

The colourS of the ocean. 

And, as it is a bit more of a walk than I am yet up for these days, I browsed through my delicious stash of papers. 

What amazes me is that it was almost as deLIGHTing as BEing at the beach, and I was right here in the Wee Cottage all the while.

I got myself all into cutting and pasting and trying to create the meld of the sea's many shades of blue and green and gray and white and sometimes brown or black, depending on the way I am looking.

I couldn't think up a clever name so I went with, 
The Light Over the Ocean

Simple.

After making my collages I scanned them in and then went on to my favourite activity, Digital Fiddling. 

And for these I stay right close to home, too, just using Picasa + Creative Kit.



Really, that's pretty much it for this week...

enJOY!!

I love the ocean and blue Currie so you had me at hello really ;D
Beautiful collages and to think you didn't have to leave the comfort of your own home to find the inspiration.
You obviously had fun creating them. I think I like the first one the best...its softer.
Have a great week and an even better weekend! :D

This is lovely Currie, as you live so near the sea it is the perfect topic. I think your name is much nicer than making up a name combination, far more poetic! I'm not sure which is your digtal fiddling one as you are so good at it, but I think I lke the second collage best. :)

Both are good, but the second one especially. Lovely mix of colours, perhaps your colour combination could be Blocean!

see you there! said...

You really captured the way the light on the waves breaks up the color. Nice.

You really captured the way light plays on the waves and the colors break up with the movement of the ocean.

Lovely colors!
Blues and greens--maybe Breens? LOL!

The light over the ocean… now that's what I call poetic, my friend. I love the colors, and especially the glowing digital effect you added to your paper collage scan in the first version. Blessings!

I'm an ocean lover too. These colors speak to me. Great piece
