A purple and yellow challenge

Purple and yellow are such good friends

I am participating in a few blog parties and online challenges this summer. 

 

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.”
Alice Walker (The Color Purple)

 

The colour challenge from Summer of Color 5 this week is purple, purple and yellow. Hop on over to Kristin’s site to see more.

The subject matter suggested by Creative Tuesdays is “Little Twitters” (birds). I’ve always loved birds, crows particularly, so it was easy!

Oddly enough, Purple Finches aren’t purple! I suppose like blue flowers are really purple? I’m not sure how this is interpreted. So I used a more literalapproach with some artistic license 😉

I had a look through some of my past work to see if I had anything that fit the colour challenge but found only this abstracted photo of pigment. (I can’t help myself sometimes, whipping my phone out at work, trying to catch the rapidly changing swirls!)
