Violet Winged Bat

- by Emily J White

This week's theme: The Colour Spectrum

Colour is light. What colour we see depends on what light waves are reflected back from a surface. Pure light can be refracted into individual wavelengths. We perceive each of these wavelengths as a spectral colour. While in reality, these colours are part of a gradation, we break them down into six colours; violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. These are the colours of the spectrum. These are the colours of the rainbow.

This week EBSQ's Art Of The Day brings you examples of these waves of light and one example of black - the colour that does not emit or reflect light.

Art: Violet Winged Bat by Artist Emily J White
This is the violet winged bat. He lives in a plum tree and thrives on the sweet nectar and bugs that happen by his branches at night. I chose to stray from my normal human-esq focal point to this dark and mysterious creature. The plum tree was just too decadent for a mere fairy. This is an original mixed media ACEO (Art Cards, Editions, and Originals). I have drawn the bat in Prismacolor pencils on acid free paper. Other media includes handmade and other papers, paint,and fabric . This one of a kind piece is signed and dated on the back. Please visit my website
