The Creative Tuesdays challenge this week was a real teaser, to come up with a blog or icon button. Now I already have my birdie button, which is not very old, and which I love.
To me, for a blog button to work it has to be quite distinctive, showing the character of the artist and with colour that will stand out, and more importantly still be recognisable when shown in a tiny size.
After a lot of thought about my style and name, I must admit I came up with another bird. As my style is quite controlled with strong lines, I painted the bird as normal but added the flowers in a random fashion using my fingertips to paint them and with a less controlled line around them, as in my blog header. What do you think?
It would be useful to get some opinions on these, if you wish, as to whether they are examples of my style.
Mr T, please do use whichever one you wish in your montage. It will be really interesting to see what others have done this week, check out Mr T's blog at any time.
