just monkeying around…

I’m not big on color… I am more of a black-n-white kind of doodler. Color on walls? – YES!!! Food? – certainly! in shopping – sure!!! But in drawing? Not so much.

Some artists are way more color-inclined than me. Look at this paint marker magic:
And the kid is only 16… (Aaa… here comes the doodle-envy again)

Here’s an excellent site for Colour Lovers as well as for Colorfully-Challenged people, such as myself. This post is particularly stimulating.

How about some COLORSTROLOGY for you? Turns out my personal color is PANTONEŽ 18-5115 (a very nice shade of sea-green). And that “…the urge to create is an essential part of your nature. You have the gift of intuition and are able to communicate your ideas with inspiration and conviction…”
Couldn’t have said it better myself 😉

Turns out there’s even a business – perspective on use of color. Colors project certain message when used on your stationary or in the stores. Of course, sometimes there are curious outcomes of the brand color strategies. Do you know who OWNS MAGENTA? You can find out here., just be prepared, your eyes might hurt a bit, but it’s all for the good cause 😉

    Sorry, had to write another comment about that kids work. I went to the forum and it just amazes me how some of people have a gift like that.

    I’ve always wanted to be better with color. I also wish that every time I am on the phone with someone who I really don’t need to talk to, I had a pad in front of me. I always draw my best doodles then.

    Hi Stephan,

    I hear yah. My doodles only get their color in afterlife, aka Photoshop :-) Oh, well, maybe one day.
    Keep your pad handy and buy a really good pen, that helps too. Good luck and keep doodling.

    I sorely tempted to stop visiting this blog, I have already added a graphic tablet to my list, now I will have to add those pens and pencils!

    Curse you, in a nice way :)
