BLUE: The Collage Club

Blue waves, blue tears, blue sky. The blue of your eyes and your shirt and your jeans. Blue means blue means blue.
BLUE, Week 1, The Collage Club

I think this ‘BLUE‘ collage works on two levels. There are the varying tones of blue and also the rain (or tear) drops that indicate sadness or being ‘blue’.

I enjoyed the contrast between the clean scissor cuts of the raindrops/teardrops versus the ripped layers of what could be the sea or at least, a sea of tears.

The remnants of my cut-outs had such an interesting texture I couldn’t bring myself to discard them, so they crept into the mix too.

The great thing about collage is that every tiny piece or remnant becomes a jewel to be saved and reworked somewhere else, so nothing is wasted. That makes me super-happy.

Meanwhile, I’m doing a course at the moment on the power of colour. It’s fascinating, especially for someone like me who regularly works with colour in designing patterns and maintaining a regular art practice. Read about the psychology of blue (and what’s your favourite shade/tint?)

Next week’s prompt: YELLOW.
