TURQUOISE Challenge entry, Alyson Appleton

Strange Fur
30″ x 40″, acrylic on canvas

The turquoise challenge is very intriguing in that it represents how a single color can conjure so many different images, emotions and feelings.

The color turquoise reminds me of rich fabrics, exotic places and an air of mystery. This piece I created by adding layer upon layer of color to the canvas. What resulted from my experimentation with color, texture, and movement of brushstrokes reminds me of a soft fur. Perhaps belonging to some exotic animal from an imaginary world or maybe the strangely beautiful petals on a long extinct flowering plant.
