Monochrome



Inspire me Thursday Challenge




This is last week's Inspire me Thursday challenge - this week's wasn't available this morning when I had a time to play. I played around with red, black and white ink without any particular image in mind.

Stunning! I see Flamenco dancers whirling.

Caroline said...

Wow - strangely I've not really seen anything in this one yet.

Toni said...

This piece has a lot of depth Caroline. Very organic.
Misty and Melanie are at Artfest taking classes so not sure when they will get to IMT.

Caroline said...

Thanks Toni - and thanks for letting me know about Misty and Melanie - that explains how I finally had time to do one of their challenges!

This is a really cool image...kind of wild and hypnotic! Do I see a little monster in there...some beady red eyes...am I being sucked into the vortex of madness.....?

Hmm... This one's a little scary! Looks like a slaughter of some kind!

Caroline said...

Thanks Carla - well monsters have been on my mind this week.... so you never know... ;-)

Viking - yes I can see that! Hmm that is scary.

Haven't said hi in a while.
Wanted to stop by...
I like the mandala, very spring. It would make a good suncatcher.

I don't know what to make of the monsters...looks like a big bat to me.

Oh, and this...can you tell I am looking at your pictures closely one at a time...
It looks bloody to me...you could title it "WAR"

I really like this and don't see the monsters or blood or war. It looks very textural and 3D and like many things connected.

I also saw a lot of monsters in your Illo Friday picture. I like the colours there too.

Melba - thanks - yes the Mandala was done in Spring (2002) so that could well be what it was about - I've never really worked it out and have lived with it since then! Bat is a neat idea for the monsters blob and I can see all too easily how this could be war!

Zinkibaru - glad that its not just about monsters, blood or war - I liked making the textures in it!

Andrea - thank you - it was the first time I managed one I felt like posting... not the first I'd tried ;-) I'd fogotten about a couple of other attempts for other themes...
