This week has gone by so quickly. The warmer weather had me outside more and getting inspiration from mother nature’s changing colours. My love of colour has grown! I love change and this week’s challenge I used marker’s instead of pencil or paint which are my usual tools of choice.
Have to admit this is one of my favourites when it comes to expression. It’s totally in my comfort zone to use many colours. Am excited to explore the design element:colour.
That’s one of the reasons why I am doing these design challenges to get out of my comfort zone. To grow as a graphic designer and artist. As each week passes I learn two things how much easier it is to get inspired and how much my drawing muscle memory I have (I liked to think is getting stronger). Day 1 Design element Colour
Every week I make drawing out a design concept multiple times a top priority. This helps me get out if a creative rut.
Using colour and experimenting with the design element space and focusing on that one gets my brain into creative mode quicker.
Hands on or being outside with fresh air are all helpful in the design/ creative process regardless of industry.
To finally get Inspiration especially with a looming is a deadline is a fine balance.
All in all getting back to basics I found the most efficient way to inspiration.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Until next week creative warriors!
Peace and love
Whenever I have a new project be it a business card or logo going through the process by hand helps me with creating a focused design using the elements of design.
This weeks challenge I am sharing with you my video on the design element texture. Check it out!
Peace and Love
I lay awake
The christmas lights are glowing
In the night
All is quiet
Creativity comes alive
I draw and paint
My imagination is wide awake
Until the sun starts to rise
The daylight is my midnight
Time to sleep again.
The design principle is Balance.
Walking in the neighbourhood found this huge tree but no Santa in the seat. But the chair was so beautiful I had to take a photo.
