Marchmeetthemaker day 22 and we are back to official prompts. Today it is Hands On. A good day to exemplify this because as with most small businesses there is always something to be done.
Targeting April 12 as potential reopening day for the shop. It is time to brighten things up. In June 2020 I came up with my AndyKnillArt logo with background colours representing the landscape of Purbeck.
The colours working down are:
Light blue – the sky
Green – grass, trees, fields of the landscape
Grey – the limestone ridge on the southern side of Purbeck which runs to the Isle of Portland
White – the chalk ridge on the northern side of Swanage and which runs throughout Southern Dorset
Yellow – the Sandy beahces
Dark blue – the sea
I have previously added this on:
Logo boiler suit and pith helmet
My home studio and office.
And now I am adding this background to the areas of the shop which are mine. I want to use this bold colour scheme which represents me and my art and make my sections of the shop stand out more. Today I started the decorating process and have so far done two coats of sky on three sections and the sea has had one coat on the same sections.
Tomorrow I will just add white rather than the grey / white split. Then I will have the green and yellow layers to add. I look forward to feedback from visitors to the shop. I will post photos of the shop once I have completed the paint layers (or see today’s post on @andy.knill Instagram account).<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4999-607e20b4d0a01' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4999&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4999-607e20b4d0a01' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4999-607e20b4d0a01'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
