Something exciting happens on Twitter every Friday! The #colour_collective posts art! Each week a colour is chosen for us and participants paint something on that colour theme. Everyone is welcome to join, there are no sign ups. The pictures posted are often art that could be in picture books but you never know what you might see.
This week the colour was Rose Quartz, a pale purple-pink type colour. I submitted the smiling critter above. The green background took 3 layers of (digital) paint before I got it the way I wanted it, can you believe it? Sometimes even simple tasks turn complicated.
How to participate in the Colour Collective:
- Make a piece of art that fits the week’s chosen colour. Look up @Clr_Collective to find out what the colour is.
- Post it on Twitter on Friday at 7:30 pm GMT, tagging the picture with #colour_collective .
- That’s it! Celebrate!
If the time makes problems for you, I recommend using Hootsuite or a similar service to schedule your tweet. Hootsuite makes tweeted life easier.
Tomorrow, Saturday, is another exciting day. It’s when we find out what the next colour theme is!
