I've spent the whole weekend pondering how much color is too much to be accepted by those who stitch. Should I worry about being popular or just pursue great "art"? Perhaps, it's better to be conservative rather than daring?
As I've written before, I've Craved color this year. Rich, vibrant hues. Lots of contrast. Plenty of Pop. Like Chihuly glass:
I thought I'd use today's post to explore this topic a bit and perhaps give you some visual candy to help you ponder what you like most, too.
Is it the number of colors within the compistion that make a design? Perhaps keeping it simple with a black background with a highly saturated design color (for this study - red) is best...
That's Chihuly-like but, is it good? Will it be better if the colors are "lighter"?
