Daily Paper Prompt #1: Paint a Rainbow

"A Gift for You. A cottage retreat on a hill in Ireland. This cottage is filled with fresh flowers, art supplies, and a double-wide chaise lounge in front of a wood-burning fireplace. There is a cabinet near the front door, where your favorite meals appear, several times a day. Desserts are plentiful and calorie free. The closet is stocked with colorful robes and pajamas, and a painting in the bedroom slides aside to reveal a plasma television screen with every movie you've ever wanted to watch. A wooden mailbox at the end of the lane is filled daily with beguiling invitations to tea parties, horse-and-carriage rides, theatrical performances, and violin concerts. There is no obligation or need to respond. You sleep deeply and peacefully each night, and feel profoundly healthy. This cottage is yours to return to at any time."

watercolor paper, gouache

Paint the page a rainbow of colors using watercolors, gouache, heavy body acrylics or fluid acrylics. Make  your rainbow any shape you wish! Draw a rainbow with Neocolor II wax crayons or water soluble colored pencils and "paint" with water to dissolve. Keep your definition of a rainbow flexible! It could be a stripe of each color of the rainbow in one medium, concentric circles or several rainbows intertwined....

Just finished "icad 2014". I did all the prompts but one Star Wars; I did my own flower. I am starting "61 daily paper prompts" today. Thank You so much for taking the time to do all this. I feel these prompts have really improved my art. I created subjects/prompts I never would have on my own. The prompts I felt would be most difficult became the easier and best creations for me. Prompts I thought would be easy were challenging sometimes. Some days time was limited I spent less time then I would have liked... some days I took more time. But I completed it. This is very cool. Thank You again. : )

OMGoodness, Yes, I love your opening statement describing your dream private space! My dream get away space would be exactly like yours. :) I just found your blog, and really like all the creative journal promts. Thanks for sharing!! :)

I started this with you last summer, Tammy, but I didn't finish - once school started in September. So - I'm glad you have these posted again this year, cause then I'll finish them up and continue with whatever wonderful prompts you continue with. Since I've now started a "arting" blog in addition to my Stamping blog, I'm going to post last years DPPs and continue on. Thanks you for all the inspiration you provide on so many levels!
