CREATIVE TUESDAY --Feb.3rd, 2015

THEME  --   AROUND THE WORLD



Have to do something colorful, sorry.  It's not mine if it isn't colorful.

Actually, I found it difficult to come up with something different or unusual.  I started out with the idea of doing some tangling around the globe, but once I had done the first one (golden leaves), I decided, it would be enough with the bright swoosh of color.  I had already decided to link it with Christopher Columbus as someone who really thought he was going around the world -- hence the question mark.  He didn't really know where he was going.

It's rather nice. and you have to admire someone who doesn't really know where they are going but is still remembered for getting there 500 yeats later

An illustaion of a piece of history, well done Chris. Love all the movement around the globe, with the shading at the bottom and the motifs adding extra speed. Gorgeous colours as well.

Chris
I love the colour and the motion. I spun around the world when I first looked at it.
And you know we don't know where we are going in the next moment really, do we? So hats off to Christopher Columbus for his inquiring mind and challenge of adventure.
Great piece,
Blessings,
Janis

Hi Chris,
Christopher Columbus won't get lost now with your creative world. Love the swirls. And I love color too! Very inspiring.

Love it! Its the perfect illustration and I wouldn't expect anything less from a teacher. ;)

Michael said...

Oh, haha, that is a perfect interpretation for this theme, Chris. Love it. He did indeed travel around the world to some extent, didn't? even if he did think he had got to India! It's especially ironic as at that time they weren't positive the world wasn't in fact flat and they'd sail off it. Great job. Clever take on the theme too. thank you!

Nice design and the colours are just right.

that's a great idea, and it works well for the theme. I do like it colorful, as I find, if you can use colors, why not?

hope you have a lovely day.
