Colour Collective- All should be in bed at witching hour…

After a very busy few months this week I finally got some time to take part in Colour Collective. Yay! Colour Collective is a great way to make new portfolio illustrations¬†and connect with other illustrators and artists on social media. It’s a weekly challenge that anyone can take part in on Twitter or Instagram. Every week a single colour is announced on the Saturday and each person posts their work the following Friday at 19.30 GMT. You can draw anything you like and include the colour somewhere on your artwork. When you post your work remember to use the hashtag #colour_collective, this way you will be included on the feed with everyone else!

This week was the colour #kohl. I love anything a bit spooky and surreal so I decided to stick solely to the colour and vary the tones. This was a great challenge for me as I usually work with a variety of colours but I absolutely loved it. I wanted to create something eerie with shadows in the moonlight and focus on the little child peeking through the curtains looking up at the moon. I then added a wee witch silhouette flying by the moon. I think if I’d had a bit more time on it I would have maybe added a giant or troll subtle silhouette in the far background. Something you wouldn’t see at first but when you look a little closer you could make it out.
