|Octoroon Girl by Archibald Motley|
ARTastic has a rather interesting painting as inspiration this month. I can't say I'm totally taken with it and if truth be known monochromatic colour schemes are my least favourite of all the variations so I struggled a bit with this one - in fact I did a couple of renditions before I settled on this one.
The added criteria also gave me some grief as I am so not a fan of maroon, in fact I have so little of it in my scrappy stash I eventually decided to do this layout as a digital version as I had more colour scope available to me.
1. A Color or Black and White pic of yourself = 1pt
2. Shades of Red and Maroon colors (Monochromatic) = 2pts
3. Include a hat or gloves somewhere on the layout = 3pts
Still I have done it and I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out. The baby is me at a few months of age and since I'm wearing a bonnet which, I guess is a babies version of a hat, I hope I have covered all criteria.
