12 in 12 to the end of April

Half way through another month seems a fitting time to update you on the 12 in 12 project.

In a book dedicated to the project, every month focuses on just one color in the color-wheel. April was the month for blue, and these are the previously unposted April pages…

detail here….

This brings us to May, and shades of blue/green colors I’m naturally drawn to!
I shall post these pages so far in a bit!

artist, thing maker & idea magpie. I am making it all up, one bit at a time.

  1. I like this idea. I bought a new art journal and named it “An Experiment in Color” and then have proceeded to use mainly one color (blue/green) for all three pages. Maybe I need to branch out and challenge myself to use a new color for a few weeks!


    1. Go for it! I find it challenging to stick to just one color, my instinct is to use way to many all at once, but that’s part of the fun. Look forward to seeing your bluey-green pages 🙂


  2. Colour is so mood evoking – those blues float me into a calm, peaceful space balanced out by the lively mark-making. Are you keeping notes on how working intensely on one colour for a month affects your general mood? I would be interested…


    1. That would be interesting, perhaps next time around (one year isn’t enough for this project!).

      I do find that when I’m engrossed in one color I have to balance this out in another area of life. Color is pretty full on in my art now and I’ve noticed I’m almost always wearing gray as a balance.
