New Year's Goal
I have a huge library full of wonderful books that I just haven't made time for.This is the one that I currently working out of. It was published in 1970 and I can't remember where I bought it, but it is a treasure to be sure. I am going through the elementary exersizes using color and learning things that I just didn't know.
I am mostly a self trained painter. My degrees in art were primarily in drawing and sculpture. So, this year I am dedicating my time to searching my miriad of wonderful books and educating myself a little more. I will share what I learn as I go along.
Today I have done a number of exersizes. It is interesting what beautiful colors you can acheive when you mix Raw Sienna with different colors. In the exersize above I mixed colors together and then added a mixture of white mixed with raw sienna and then mixed those colors together and wow....what gorgeous colors. A great way to tone down color and in some cases produce hotter color. I am so excited about what I have learned!!!
My other goal this month is to paint fabric...]: Now that will take courage.
