I've always been a huge fan of color. Any color! In my quilting days I would always get comments like, "I never would have thought to put those colors together." It's what set me apart as a quilter from a lot of others. That was 20 years ago. Now those color combinations are very much normal in today's world of fashion and decor.

But for some reason I've had a harder time with that use of color in my digital art. The difference? Fabric sits right there in front of you and you can rearrange to your hearts' content. Creating digitally on the computer reminds me a bit of painting. A blank canvas, maybe an idea, but essentially you are creating from nearly nothing. Sometimes I feel like that on my computer. And for me that is hard.

And for some reason the past couple years I have acquired an attraction to very neutral colors. They can be very striking but also boring in some cases.

The next goal to explore in my art will be to attempt to recapture beautiful and perhaps unusual color mixes.

When I go to the movies these days, I watch like a photographer would be looking through their lens. Sometimes it's better than the actual story.
I discovered this awesome video done by Rishi Kaneria on Vimeo, ROYGBIV: A Pixar Supercut. Now I'll be looking at 'color tones' a lot more while at the movies.
I tried to embed the video and google wouldn't let me for some strange reason. So here is the link, you will love it!


  1. Really love your stackable image of the flower. The muted tones offer a dream-like quality to the image. Great idea to look for color tones in films. Cheers!

  2. It sure does look like you are having fun!

  3. You always give lots to think about and I love the way you challenge yourself. I wish I could sit beside you sometime when you are doing your digital art. I love the color in the first piece but I also love the tones in the second. I am off to watch the video.....

  4. Wow...Roxi...I watch movies or tv dramas the same way! I view it from behind the lens and looking at the framing of the scenes, varying the focus and dof. I love your images and your colorful flair and style. You are up to the gills in talent!!!!

  5. I love that last image. Soft muted colors are so calming.

  6. Both are so different and so beautiful


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
