Monochromatic series continued: yellow, red and white

Monochromatic explorations continued

Over 300 days ago, I decided to start project 365, to create a picture a day for 365 days. This is a fun project that has been challenging me creatively. One of the things I started to realize is how much I love to work in series. In my initial monochromatic series (blue series), I started working with this concept. Other examples of series I created through project 365 include the music, as well as sharps series. 

Working in series does help in narrowing down the scope of the creative process, at least for a while. Being mindful and pre-visualization further help me in my creative process, but there is still a lot of room for spontaneity, serendipity and letting things “happen”.  

Working in monochromatic “themes” is nothing new. Most famously, Pablo Picasso worked on a blue period from 1901-1904. 

Continuing the series of monochromatic explorations beyond blue, I have been working on a yellow series, a red series and a white series.
