Monochromatic Pink Art Journal Page

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.
Georgia O’Keefe

Continuing to paint in The Monochromatic Series, as I’ve come to call it. Art Journal spreads exploring one colour only and the different aspects of that colour. The third colour of course had to be my favorite colour (not even wild horses could hold me back any longer, as we say in Sweden): pink.

Pink detail
A mix of red and white, the colour of sweet love, young girls, and my cat’s nose. Pink is my own true love colour.

View of the whole spread:

Mixing colours, trying out both watercolour pink and acrylics from bottles and jars, some pink papers and stickers etc.

If you’re into colour exploring and/or pink feel free to also check out my still ongoing Pink Sketchbook! It’s a smaller sized spiral bound book where I collect pink like a maniac! :-)

    Oh, I LOVE it. Lately I have been so drawn to this hot pink color. I am just starting my first art journal now and the idea of doing monochromatic pages definitely has inspired me to dive in! Thank you!

    Chel, thanks for commenting! I think monochromatic pages are a great start to explore in a new Art Journal or if you are new to art journaling, that would make it an exercise in colour with not so much need to make it perfectly pretty! :-) Enjoy!

    Loving your monochromatic pages, iHanna. My favorite so far was the turquoise, but they’re all so nice!

    I am not a pink person, but let me tell you that your pages just changed my mind… so pretty!!!!!! I think I’ll start to explore this color and all the combinations you can make with it. Thanks for sharing.

    Hanna…love the pink… like Ana, I’m usually not into pink but those pages are lovely. Your photos in the previous post are great…I like the dirty lens effect.

  9. Fanie says:

    Wow, Hanna. :-) I love this monochromatic serie. You’re making me ponder about doing the same, eventually.

    Did you work with red, yet? If not, that would make one interesting and vibrant color. Woah! :)

    Your art journal pages are so amazing. I’m so intimidated by blank pages that it takes me forever to fill them. Maybe I’ll give this colour thing a go…

    Thanks for commenting on the pink pages!

    Fanie, yes I did a ruby red page – that’s where this series got started! Oh, and thanks for the books. I haven’t read them yet but they have arrived finally. Thanks! :-)
