“Without Black, no colour has any depth.” -Amy Grant

This weekend over on Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC, the Weekend Challenge is our June colour challenge (slightly early), and the colour we chose is Obsidian!

The moment I saw this colour I knew I could have a little bit of fun and play around with a few plants and flowers, and although Black is the most common colour of Obsidian, it can also be brown, tan, or green.

Rarely, obsidian can be blue, red, orange, or yellow. The hues are thought to be caused mainly by trace elements or inclusions.

Have I got it almost right, or have I created one or two new hues?

  1. Another new word I’ve now added to my vocabulary, Sue. The photos look great yet the first thing that came to my mind was Ozzy Osbourne. I know, but colours can have that effect. 😊

  2. Obsidian is definitely an interesting colour, and your obsidian colour palette, gives you an intriguing range, and very open to the imagination….. so I figure the colour interpretation lies in the eyes of the beholder…… and your plants are well within the boundaries of my dimming old eyes….. πŸ˜€πŸ˜ŽπŸ™„

    This is a new one on me Sue. I love the photos you chose to demonstrate, and they all appear to be well within the parameters to meet the criteria of obsidian.

    Ya done good!

    1. It was new to me too, such gorgeous colours aren’t they? Hope all is well with you, Ginger, and thank you for your comments πŸ™‚


  4. I think you got it right! Such beautiful shades/colours!
    I’ve seen the rock/stone called Obsidian. And I’ve always seen a tinge of purple in there…even if it’s not. Ha. (I love all shades of purple!)

    1. This is my second response, the first just vanished!.
      Some of my favourite colours too.
      And you are correct, Obsidian is the stone from which all those wonderful colours are derived!
