There is a group of illustrators and artists active on Twitter by the name (and hashtag #) colour_collective.
Each Friday night, at the same time, they all post a work they made using the same colour. This colour is announced every Saturday via the colour_collective account on twitter. Each artist is free to pick a theme and medium of their choice.
I, too am part of this on line collective.
A few months ago I decided to make a series of the ugly duck story. I wanted to experiment a little with the style and digital art. Only in my story the ugly duck wasn’t a little swan.. 🙂
Here is what I posted each week:
Then Twitter made it able to use more characters in a message.
After walking away from the farm, he came at a #lake. He saw the most wonderful water #birds. ‘I wished I was one of them’ he sighed. And he joined them, although he was afraid they would harm him. #drawing for today’s #colour_collective #persiangreen #illustration #flamingos part 6
‘ Look there is a new flamingo! He is the most beautiful of them all’ As he saw people pointing at him, he was surprised & became very shy. He looked at his #reflection and saw he was indeed a very beautiful.. #flamingo! . Last #illustration of #uglyduck for #colour_collective.
