GROUP DESCRIPTION AND MISSION STATEMENT:
This group gathers artists together who want to appreciate and facilitate the use of bright, dynamic, and vivid color in their works of art, and who would like to share photographic tips and techniques that might help the professional and/or the newly emerging artist produce colorful art.
Never before in the history of art or mankind has there been such a time as this that caters to and enables individual artists to create work that is so vivid and vibrant with color. The advent of relatively new LCD computer screens, color digital cameras, color digital photo frames, color enhancement tools, and even the new HDTVs all provide the viewer with colors that are so beautiful and vivid that they excite the soul and almost take the breath away.
If you appreciate and like to use vivid color in your work; if you love to see the vibrant colors of a beautiful sunset, or the uncanny surrealistic landscapes of an alien or fantasy planet, or the strikingly bold but delicate lines of a multi-colored fractal, or the mind-blowing color of psychedelic art, then you’ve found the right place! Please join our group of like-minded artists and contribute your work and writings to our colorful and diverse community.
1) Please only add work which contains one or more bright, vivid colors.
2) Please don’t add more than 1 to 3 pieces of dynamically beautiful colored images at any one time. (It really helps the appreciation of and the “flow” of different styles if they don’t come in big bunches.)
3) Please don’t get upset if your work is removed. We have very liberal submission requirements, but we wish to retain the right to remove images that we find don’t have the characteristics of color the sets our group apart from all others. But please don’t get us wrong or misconstrue our preferences as prejudice or as a narrow or elitist viewpoint; we truly love all forms of art, but this group is dedicated to the fantastic characteristics of bright, brilliant, living color.
4) If you wish to become a group coordinator, or moderator, or contribute to this mission statement or to this group in some other way, please send RedBubble mail to your friendly host(s).
5) Periodically the host(s) will choose an especially compelling or timely theme or topic for a group challenge. Group members can enter one of their images and then vote on the entries to choose the winner. Winning images will be featured on the challenge page, in forums, and displayed as the group icon. Other prizes such as RedBubble purchase credits may be offered, as listed on each individual challenge description. Feel free to write an interpretive image description, and a complementary article that you can link from your entry image description text.
Remember, the host(s) are volunteers, so please treat them with friendliness and respect.
