This week there's a colour challenge at the Artist's Play Room - to create an image using 'blorange', in other words blue and orange. It's all explained on the A.P.R. blog.
This is my response to the challenge, a 'blorange' love affair:
This was a combination of digital and Pitt Artist's pen. Sadly, the scan has not reproduced the bright colours well, but that's the way it goes some days.
I always enjoy the striking combination of these complementary colours, blue and orange, so it was no struggle to use them. After all, they do belong together.
What was more of a struggle was deciding what my image should be, and when the flash of inspiration came I wanted to combine digital with drawing.
Quite pleased with the result, and my little lovebirds - Belinda and Bertram - can live happily ever after in their bright blorange birdland.
I like the contrast!ReplyDelete
ohh they are just so adorable Jez, I love them, especially the LEGS!! Gotta love the knobby knees, hehehe. Hope youhave a lovely week.ReplyDelete
Belinda and Bertrand are fantastic! what a lovely way to combine the colours. They look very vibrant even though you say the scan has not reproduced the colour so well. I am not used to using such contrasting colours so I admire greatly people who can do it so easily!! Brilliant Jez. :)ReplyDelete
This made me smile! I love your "love birds" in the opposite but similar worlds of blue and orange..."Blorange"! The red added is so sparky!ReplyDelete
Beautiful Jez, I get a bit of a vintage feel from this, like it could be an old postcard. The colours are striking and work together really well. Belinda is so pretty too! xReplyDelete
Visiting from the APR - I love this. I would be more than happy to gaze at this upon my wall :0) MoReplyDelete
I love the names you come up with :-) The colour combination is fab... And again I couldn't say which bit is digital and which isn't'.ReplyDelete
sweet! I'm here from the Artist's Play Room! :D Lovely work!ReplyDelete
They are so cute, love the look in the blue one's eye. I too love mixing digital with drawing.ReplyDelete

Wow! The colors worked wonderful! And that little red in the bird's beak makes it perfect! It's awesome how you have created that artwork from "BLORANGE"!ReplyDelete
Belinda and Bertram - 2Bs... or not 2Bs... that is the question!ReplyDelete
Wonderful Jez :)
Belinda and Bertram are very cool... and this is my favourite colour combo... as to Lisa's comment above mine... 2B or not 2B ... that is fab... see how you inspire us Jez...xxReplyDelete

Opposites attract. Blessings!ReplyDelete
Belinda and Bertram are so sweet, love those knees. I have the same trouble with orange and blue in my scanner, it drives me crazy as they never come out bright. I've tried playing with the colour balance but nothing seems to work.ReplyDelete
