I was planning on posting about some of my jewellery tonight, but I’ve managed to run out of time. So instead here is a photo from our recent holiday on the Yorke Peninsula that caught my eye while uploading those jewellery photos. This is right on the heel of the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. […]
There is nothing specifically arty starting with the letter ‘N’. I went through the dictionary, I even went through the indexes of some of my art books and looked under N (great suggestion, Hubby :D), but all I could come up with was ‘nature’ and ‘negative space’.
Calothamnus (common names include ‘Net Bush’) is a genus of plants confined the Western Australia. This one is from my In-Law’s front garden. It is responding to the unusually wet summer we’ve had, and has thrown on all this beautiful new growth. I was up there picking up my daughter when I saw it and had to rush home to grab my camera. The colours in this are fantastic and I may create some artwork from it.
One thing I learnt a few years ago is that sometimes clouds make for much more interesting photography than blue sky. Travelling around in winter when the weather is very changeable (remember Winter Rains?) can give ample opportunity for dramatically lit shots.
So how did you go? Are there lots of red artworks out there? I hope so 😀
To submit your work to the challenge, either upload your art to the brand new Spectrum Square Flickr group, or add a link in the comments section of this post. Then we can all bask in the glory of last week’s colour 😀
This is a challenge I’ve been meaning to participate in for awhile, and I was lazing around out in the backyard (read: supervising children) when the shadows on our shed wall struck a chord and set me running for my camera. I did take a piccy of the shed wall, but didn’t stop there and ventured out into our front yard to see what else I could find.
