R for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 5: R is for......Respect!





I've always claimed Red as my favorite color. You know. RED.

When I began to watercolor, RED took on a number of names and shades. And more, until the list outgrew me. There were many Reds that I mistakenly called pinks and browns.

As always, Wikipedia provides an answer for everything Red  including a lengthy list of Reds along with matching color chips. Each of these sites is full of wonderful information.

Looking at this litany of Reds brought on an urge to color something. Anything. An urge to replace the gray of today with vivid, life-sustaining RED. So, I'm off to play with color on my Bamboo Fun Tablet which is similar to watercoloring without the mess.

Red, it is.

The image is a digital 'watercolor' created on Bamboo Fun Tablet and framed in FrameFun.

Great picture. For some reason I don't have much red around me. Don't know why. I quite like the colour.

Rose said...

Lovely painting, Sue! Some spots of red would be most welcome on this gray, gloomy day here.

Yesterday I saw a pair of bordeaux pumps that I would never have considered before...

Seems like my whole work wardrobe is nothing but black and gray! I've been thinking of adding some color, and you've got me rethinking red in a big way!!

Loved this post - thanks for giving me just the kick I needed.

Sounds interesting! I've never heard of the Bamboo Fun Tablet! Maybe I'd like it. :)

Beautiful! Bamboo Fun Tablet sounds like fun. I don't know why but I kind of like the "mess". I'm off to view that lengthy list of reds....

Lovley take on 'R' and your picture is so very pretty. It's fascinating to see how many shades and tones of red there are. Going to look at Wikipedia now :-)

Judi said...

I love red, also. That lengthy list of reds reminded me of lipstick or nail polish lined up at the cosmetics counter for our careful consideration:)

Irene said...

It's really nice, this digital watercolour red drawing.

Enjoying seeing more of your talent! Red is a cheerful and vibrant color that I've heard increases our appetite which is why it is often used in restaurant decor!
It is amazing how many different color names in paints there are for common names. I'm also an artist and I know most, but am always learning new names for some color, especially because manufacturers come up with new ones besides the old standbys.

I have always love red, and that painting of yours is beautiful.

Reader Wil said...

This Red painting is gorgeous, Tumblewords! Very colourful!

Red is my wife's favorite color. Lovely painting of reds.

This is lovely, and red is just the colour for a dull, northern November day. It's a colour I used to dislike when I was young, but I find it very cheering now.

Bamboo Fun Tablet? What am I missing? I must rush off to Google.
