The colour Mustard Yellow was selected by Louise Gale for this months Creative Colour Challenge. I can honestly say that I have never set out with the intention to paint something yellow so this was indeed a bit of a challenge. The colour yellow conjured up visions of sunshine, daffodils, sunflowers, the honey mustard in the fridge. It also brought back memories of Autumn, as the winter closes in, the leaves turn a million different shades of golden yellow and have all but completely fallen from the tree.
I took some inspiration this month from an artist by the name of Anne Baldwin whose book "Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists" I recently bought. I really love her work and several of her paintings gave me some ideas for my Golden Autumn piece. In the end, it turned out to be more of a yellow/orange finish.
Art: Golden Autumn
