August 18...."R" Micro Art Mini Challenge

Seeing Red

If one says 'red' - the name of color - and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different. (Josef Albers

According to color psychology, having red nearby increases heart rates, energy levels, and the release of adrenalin. People who gravitate toward red are described as confident, energized, powerful, and determined. In some cultures, it symbolizes good fortune. I've always liked red and keep some of it around, in clothing, home accents and dishes. Some restaurant designers encourage the use of red accents in dining rooms as it is known to significantly boost sales due to increasing people's appetites.

Today's Project: "R"  Seeing Red
  • Think about the color red...what does it represent to you? Is it a color you want to see daily? How many red things do you see every day? 
  • On your 3x3 card, using mostly reds, create an image you like. Could be a favorite red item, something from nature or a non representational picture.
  • I used watercolors and after wetting the paper, drizzled paint and let it spread out on its own. 
  • Set it out where you can enjoy it
