On 2014 I've imposed myself a challenge: "I should draw a doodle a day, during the whole year".The reason why I took such a challenge was because I wasn't happy with how much I created on the year before, on 2013. 


Before starting the challenge I would procrastinate instead of drawing, I would wait for some magic sort of inspiration to come in order to draw anything at all. 


That was the paradigm, the standards of my work flow. 




After concluding the 365 Days of Doodles project I had a new paradigm: I can create one black&white drawing everyday.


What I want to do now in 2015 is changing the paradigm again: I want to add color palettes to my doodles. Seven, to be more specific. :)

 Palette |pal - it|

noun

"the range of colors used by a particular artist."



I have divided the palette project into 7 parts: each one represents a color of the rainbow. The following seven months will have a main color theme, from Red to Violet. 


:bulletred: February - Red

:bulletorange: March - Orange

:bulletyellow: April - Yellow

:bulletgreen: May - Green

:bulletblue: June - Blue

:bulletblack: July  - Indigo

:bulletpurple: August - Violet


I hope that by the end of the project I'll have a better understanding of lighting, mood and coloring.


I've been trying to color both on traditional and digital media but I'm taking a liking on the latter. I'm still getting used to a lot of stuff so things may change throughout the project.



Color can shape the world in amazing ways. This is the message I want to transmit on my drawings this year. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks a lot for everyone's support so far! :heart:

This is really great and inspiring! I have my own personal goals. I doodle a lot but I rarely finish any art. And I also need to work on stories, so my own challenge is to work on those. :)
