More Colored in Boxes

I really enjoyed coloring with oil pastels again on this one. I'm not really impressed with my color choice, but it helped me realize 1) the difficulty in picking colors that will look good together and 2) planning ahead with color harmonies is a good idea. After scanning it in I played around with the colors in Photoshop by making a selection box around one rectangle at a time and using the enhance>adjust color>hue/saturation function. I ended up posting the original; nothing I came up with was that much better, and I realized that color combos like this can be interesting to study even if they're not particularly stunning.

Making these big blocks of color with oil pastels inspired me to a goal: use them till there gone!

Here's a link to the original idea at Art Projects for Kids.
