I LOVE THE COLOR//COLOUR LOVERS PROJECT

I LOVE THE COLOR//COLOUR LOVERS PROJECT

Another winter blasted away with the simple task of finding colour.

It’s tradition that Andrea & I start this color//colour lovers project in January, to serve a daily dose of vibrancy to beat the winter blahs creeping in.

It works. It truly does.

Each week a new colour and new opportunities to bask in technicolour.

I wear colour and have flowers in the house… spot colour in familiar places (like the doors above) and some ordinary ones. Take a photo, make a film… whatever I like. The freedom of the project is anything goes.

This year has been magic… there have been lots of other projects and work things happening that have taken my attention, but it’s so good to commit to this and find inspiration, generate new ideas and push myself to get out and shoot, when really I should be dealing with my inbox.

I’ve created work I wouldn’t have, cheered myself up on grey days, enjoyed watching other people join us on this colourful treasure hunt and as ever, I love collaborating with Andrea.

My favourite pieces of work to come out of this project… were the transition stop motions.

Last year I created colourful collections each week and I wanted something new for 2016, so the idea of saying good-bye to one colour and hello to another seemed fun, as I’ve previously done it with a photo. Especially if I could use totally random things and play with them.

I love this series! Hope you enjoyed them too.

And the final one… GOODBYE BLUE – LET’S CARRY ON CELEBRATING ALL THE COLOURS, ALL THE TIME!

Thanks to everyone who followed along and joined in.

Till next time, we will update our shared space soon, so all the colours can sit together beautifully.

Not sure when we’ll be back, there are whisperings of doing it again, perhaps even this year?… I’ll keep you posted.

    I loved seeing the films that switched colours each week, it wasn’t until I saw them here that I realised that you have stripey tops for each one. Brilliant.
