"Color is a power which directly influences the soul" -Wassily Kandininsky

C H A L L E N G E
Color is all around us, every moment of every day. Not only for us to see but also in symbolism. It is one aspect of every culture worldwide that has been around since the beginning. Different colors can have different meanings between cultures - like red in China is associated with good luck - fortune and brides traditionally wear red wedding dresses while red in western countries is a symbol of martyrs and sacrifice because of its association with blood. It is through these differences that the colors have a specific meaning to them.

The A&G Staff this month is looking deeper into colors and their meanings. Your challenge is to choose one of the following scenes:


  • Harry's Sorting

  • Ron and Harry's confrontation after Harry's name came out of the Goblet of Fire

  • Hermione watching Ron and Lavender's kiss

  • Bill and Fleur's wedding

  • Voldemort's death during the Battle of Hogwarts

You will portray this scene in various shades of ONE color that you think best suit the emotions of the characters at that time.
R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ Must portray one of the scenes listed above.
+ Must use varying shades of ONE color.
+ Any medium can be used to create your entry.

Just double checking that photomanipulation is allowed because I can only do minimal digital drawing but I have an idea for this. It will just require shots of the movies... Thanks in advance!

@Hannah-Abbott Yes, photomanipulation is allowed as long as it is mostly your own work.

Now you have me curious. I look forward to seeing what you're planning!

@zimmy We were having trouble getting the entries for the Writing one up, so had them both locked until we could. We've come up with a fix for the Writing ones, so they should be open tonight. There'll be a couple of days added once they become unlocked.
