Assignment in Blue

Posted March 22nd, 2012 by Candice

I’m taking an online photography/inspiration class called “Beyond Layers,” by Kim Klassen.  This week we’re highlighting a different color each day. 

Today is “blue.”  I didn’t have time to set up a still life even though I have tons of blue things around my house.  Instead I submitted this shot to our Flickr group.   This vignette resides on top of a tall bookcase.  The LP cover was given to me by the Goodwill Goddess. 

Besides announcing spring, the blue background in this cover is one of my favorite shades–robin’s egg.  It also combines previous daily colors: green, yellow and pink. 

Look for blue today.  You’ll find it in surprising places!

    Candice, I think we may be doing a bit of synchronicity! I had so much fun with my Photoshop, I wanted to review color theory before headed on to Duke Day. I’m in the middle of reading about blue (http://www.colormatters.com/blue) when I checked the mail and your post! Just love your items! BTW, your post on space, had me thinking about something in Sara, still trying to work it out in my head, but I’m sure it’s important, so I appreciate your thoughtful posts!

    Ah, you have “real” Photoshop. I’m still learning Elements, but at least I’m not afraid of it any more and I don’t say I’m too “dumb” to learn it. Thanks for the website–I love anything about color! I’ve been mulling over what color to paint our bedroom for four years! And I’m thrilled you are still working on Sara. Keep going!
