Word - White

The word for this week is white.

Its adjective meaning: free from color; of the color of new snow or mild; light or pallid in color; free from spot or blemish; pure, innocent; blank, consisting of a wide range of frequencies.

Its noun meaning: the color of minimal lightness that characterizes objects which both reflect and transmit light; the opposite of black.

I don't know about you but I see so much color in these little white cups that I just can't wait to do them in a piece of artwork. Can you see the blues, violets, greens and yellows? Squint your eyes, they are all there just waiting for you to discover them. The shadows are the richest allowing the blue and violet color intermingle with each other showing off all the subtle shape differences and reflective shadows. Oh yeah, this has got to be a colored pencil piece for sure. I'm off to the drawing board...
