Color is How You SEE it! Sunday Fill'r Up

It is a beautiful spring day here -
and there is just so many things changing visually around me that it seemed that the best thing to chat about today would be SEEING.

After all, all art is about 'seeing' first.
Seeing, describing, analyzing, and interpreting.

So, as you go about your day today --
to the park, or in the yard, or even the grocery store I'd like to encourage you to take your color journal and document what you see.

TRY IT #1 -In the park or your yard --
Find a tree, and sit back and take a close look.
Note its shape, then note its parts -
leaves, trunk
what is the role of color here?
what colors do you see?
are there areas of dark - light - changes - reflections?
TRY IT #2 - If you're like me and have to head to the grocery store --
how about bring your color journal and listing out all the different colors you find.
Can you find 10?

It doesn't take a lot of time to 'see' a bit more, a bit differently,
but, it can really help build your color muscles.

Would love to hear about what you 'see' today.
Enjoy the day!
