Mixing Color

Speaking of using color. There I was mixing inks and watercolor just as I have before. Only this time I’m discovering all these beautiful tones! I’m rethinking this piece again.

Yes I need some pulse and precision practice. That’s what practice is for.

Notes: brighter orange, a darker blue, bigger petals on the flowers. Keep with the idea of being a post card. More of a peach pink instead of the purple. write lindo y querido with thicker strokes.

You’re thinking too much. Paint.

I love my work and I’m having fun with these ideas. I found amazing pinks on Peruvian blankets. I really needed color harmony in my life.

Plastic Wrap + Rock Texture?

I intended to paint a place somewhere in Australia. Not sure where this is, but what a beautiful photo. This voice insisted on realism. I decided why not check off the texture list I started. Plastic wrap it is.

All I needed was shades of blue and black. Then I cut the plastic wrap to fix each section accept the heart. Trying a new technique with no expectations but a little visual interest.

Magic happens during the drying process. I did add a few more layers. I love my iteration. The color and texture are amazing! And the thought…change is good, change is beautiful. Change takes time and evolution is always changing, growing and gift for us all.

Now this is the art that I want to create. These are the ideas that make me dance and sing!
