Roses Project

Roses (Mixing Pinks)

Here are the first swatches. The first row is my five pink hues. The next few rows are the pinks with titanium white or titan buff. I’m imagining pink roses. Pink roses are friendship, love, a little flirty, nurturing, and playful. These are all the emotions I am when I’m painting or in nature. I included two red hues. I have a few more reds to try. Next, I’ll be referencing and mixing from my Pinterest pink board. And speaking of today’s prompt, Learning By Heart: Teachings to Free the Creative Spirit has changed me. This book is the start of my expressive-abstract-no right way to paint flowers mantra.

Eric Carle is another favorite. Books are my gateway to fun, adventure, curiosity, joy, and bravery. This prompt helps me set the mood for my roses project! I’m not sure where this project will take me. I welcome all the good to come. I want the roses book to be about friendship and love for the spirit.
