In Love With Color

learn how to mix color with acrylic paints

Seriously, walking down the isles of Blick makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. Exploring a website isn’t as fun but getting art supplies in the mail is fun tool. Forest Green, Mauve and Indigo are on my list.

I like to think that my flowers and everything I paint feels like summer. To me summer is a time for being lazy, reflection, falling in love, the outdoors., peace and feeling free. I love it all! I want summer every day of my life. There should always be time to stroll. Yes I should add this to my list of projects. A poster? A print? Someday a book? Say! Let me right that down. Anyway that’s the story behind my paintings. Oh and there’s this need to feed my curiosity by using fun tools to paint. Wait till you see tomorrow’s post!

I’m trying to up my color game. I bought these Royal & Langnickel acrylics. Aside from the blue and green, the pink and yellow aren’t my tones. With a little mixing I was able to come up with colors I could work with.

Not sure what to call a sponge handle without the sponge.

I mixed up a beautiful orange. I started painting and let the weird shapes dry. Ok I felt like they were trash. After a few hours I started adding details and suddenly they became blooming beauties. I do have to erase a few parts, paste stems with flowers but these are beautiful. I could paint like this all day. Career? Yes!
