A Pop of Colour: Lesson 9 Incorporating Colour

On my mind is how I want to bring Beauty to the world we live in.  I listened to a Ted Radio Hour episode called What is Beauty? and this is the question I have been pondering.  Would I do it through music? a poem? a kind word?

In Lesson 9 of Developing Your Eye, the discussion is about Colour and how its use can create different moods and arouse various emotions.  When used purposefully and well, I imagine one can make a mundane subject rather intriguing.  Would photography be an avenue for me to create the Beauty I desire to share?As much as I want to create, I need also to take time to appreciate it around me. So,  when I chanced by these flowers by the kerb as I walked home from the bus stop.  I decided to take 5 minutes to spend some time with them as a RegularRandom exercise.

Here are the RegularRandom guidelines, if you would like to join in the fun.

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to DelseyJane

Questions lead to more questions.  All I know for sure right now is that I do want to be a student of Beauty: in appreciating it as well as creating it.  How? is a question that I will have to continue to enjoy exploring.

What canvas have you chosen to paint Beauty?
