It’s the last in my installment of The Color Series! After five weeks of chronicling work that utilizes blue, pink, green, purple, and gray, the series has come to its natural conclusion. For this final week, let’s explore the rich world of brown illustrations, embroidery, and paper craft.
The Color Series
If you’re a long time reader to Brown Paper Bag, you know that I love color. I’ve spent more than a month (so far) on the The Color Series, which chronicles illustration, embroidery, and even sketchbooks to show how creatives will utilize a single color in their work. So far, I’ve selected vibrant colors like pink, green, and purple. But today, let’s back off from brilliant blue and set our sights on gray illustrations(or grey, for those across the pond).
After taking a week off, it’s nice to return to The Color Series. Unfamiliar with what that is? Over the past several weeks, I’ve chronicled illustration, embroidery, and sketchbooks that overwhelmingly use one color in their compositions. (If you’ve missed my previous picks, check out blue, pink, green.) Now, helping to round this series out are purple illustrations.
Another Monday, another edition of The Color Series! Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve picked illustration and crafts where one color dominates the rest (in a good way, of course) in composition and form. So far, we’ve seen tranquil blue and pink reverie. Now, it’s time for green embroidery and green illustrations.
Last Monday, I started The Color Series, in which I select illustrations, paper craft, and embroidery that overwhelming utilize one hue in their compositions. First up was blue with its tranquility and melancholy on full display. Now, I’m featuring pink; the color of beautiful blooms and cotton candy.
You can’t understate the importance of color—especially in art. It wields its power in all sorts of ways, from setting the mood to giving us important visual clues. Over the next several weeks, I’ll share a selection of illustration, paper craft, and embroidery that overwhelmingly uses one hue in its composition. Called The Color Series, first up are blue illustrations.
