It is time for some colourful self-expression!

We asked you to keep a visual record of any interesting colour applications or combinations you spotted in the run up to the course and in Week 1.

You might accidentally have stumbled across and photographed a noteworthy mix of colours – a spontaneous still life.

Or maybe you have a photo of a painting or artwork you have created.

Your eye might have been caught by a pattern on a textile or on other manufactured product, or maybe you have recorded seasonal colour from nature.

You may wish to share commercial use of colour in branding, advertising or logos.
