Nikki King — a beautiful, considered use of colour that oozes simplicity and strength. It’s a very striking image.  

Jessica Duffy —a cacophony of colour, shape, line, texture that just sings. The combination of these elements is balanced beautifully. 

Belinda Wells. A beautiful underwater coral sea. I find this very soothing.

Tracy Robinson — a very brightly coloured floral that just pops off the page.


Sharon Strange — I am a huge advocate of art journaling — for working through all art’s and life’s ideas, problems and questions.  


Liam, age 7. I picked these for the col ours, patterns and the scary teeth and eyes! The fins are also really cool.

Lily Borg — these are rad sneakers and I love the expressive use of colour, pattern and shapes.

Angie, 16 - student, submitted by Belinda Wells. I love the textures, colours, and characters are freaky!

Akshata Benegal Gulvady submitted this for her daughter. I love the abstract floral shapes, but the use of colour is gorgeous — the mix of line and filled in shapes is just delicious.

Amy Lynch this dog is divine. There is a wonderful expression in the eyes and head tilt, but it is 100% the use of solid areas of colour that made me choose this one.

Colour Rush Inspiration

When you think “colour rush” you may picture an intense explosion of colour, rainbows dancing across the page, colourful flowers and botanical gardens, cataclysmic space particles colliding to make cosmic colours, mandalas with intricate patterns, or perhaps you think of a candy sugar rush!

Close your eyes and think about what a colour rush looks like in your mind's eye, and let your art flow.

We have collected some fantastic pieces of art rich in colour to give you some inspiration for the competition, you can also read what they have to say about their art and the Life of Colour products.

“Fairy houses, painted rocks, bee baths and painted pots. All created by the Arts & Craft group at the North Brighton Community Garden SA, for our Spring Open Day. They are all painted with acrylic paints and paint pens.”

Silky Stix, Juicy Gel pens, Watercolour and Acrylic Paint Pen Artwork by Stacey Montford.

“When I created this special peace symbol, I blended gel pens together for the faded effect over the top of yellow silky stix and used a fine tip paint pen for the bold lines to make everything pop!!”

Floral Brush Paint pens, Artwork by Jessica Dalgleish.

"This colourful lettering is easy to replicate with these brush pens. It just includes a few simple shapes and letters to make up my favourite word - ‘CREATE’. Something I try to do everyday! Adding all the colours of the rainbow gives it a summer/spring vibe too which I love!"

Watercolour Artwork by Dina Tharwat

“Painting and doodling helped me through the tough lockdown time, and it also created a stronger bond with my daughters, as we frequently spend quality time together painting and crafting. Thank you 😊”

Get the kids involved in the competition and create some rainbow characters or animals spilling colour everywhere! Hoping that you all have a great time creating a rush of colourful content for the greatest competition ever! Goodluck to everyone!!!
