Brown and Blue

The OTTBS challenge for February is blue and brown. It's not a combination of colours I have previously used so I thought I would have a go.

I thought I knew what brown was or is to me. Wrong.... there's lemon and beige and rust and more so just where do they fit in when you class it as a colour.

So that has set me off to find out more about colour. During this search I came across some wonderful blogs and a challenge called one colour crayon where each person made an item using one colour only. There's some fantastic pieces and lots to learn there.

So back to my challenge piece - I decided to continue with the colours I had chosen and the plan to play with freeform. It won"t fit the brown and blue challenge but nevertheless it's become a personal challenge piece.
So here it is at it sits on my bead table this morning. There's a little more to do before attaching a clasp. The results are - to explore freeform more, the structure, texture and colour and continue the pursuit of colour and how to use it.
