"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

The Colour Wheel: DLP2015 Week 3

I have really looked forward to this each week.  Working with the theme for January: "The blank page and how to face it", the art challenge for the Documented Life Project was:  "The Colour Wheel".   The journal prompt was a quote by Gerogia O'Keeffe "I found I could say things with colour and shape that I couldn't say any other way."  My heart resonates with this quote.  I feel like art gives voice to my soul to express my thoughts, my feelings, my emotions, my passions and all those things I love and hold dear.

I wanted to do something bright and colourful.  In keeping with my goal to learn new art techniques, I again, used a tutorial to help me create this flower across my page.  I just love the colours and background.  Most of all, I loved that I learned how to create something new.
A vibrant flower to bring colour and cheer to my day.
I decided to catalogue my water colours on the other half of my page.  I have to say, I enjoyed this very much.  It was nice to see how all the colours looked on paper.  It gave me a good idea about pigment as well sampling how to work with them a little bit.  It is so bright and cheerful too!  I will journal over top of them throughout the week in some sort of fashion.  Not sure how yet.

Loving this time of learning and settling in.
