What fun this was!! I have not painted in months and months. Nothing inspired me until I saw your little challenge in your blog.
"What a great idea," I said to me. "I want to try this."
I painted on simple cardstock so it was quite 'grabby' and looks a bit 'watery' but I also needed a card. LOL
What did I learn?
Well. At first I was concerned about the use of colour and what to use where? I soon discovered I didn't care about the colour at all or even the mixing of colour. I wasn't even concerned about the finished look and was very loose with this. I just wanted to know what I could accomplish with just two colours and two non-colours. I found I was more concerned with value and where to put the light or dark. Kind of like . . . this is the base painting before I add the 'real' colour.
My choice of colour to use with the black and white was blue and yellow. I did not use any one colour on it's own. It didn't look right and was too 'stark.' Everything is mixed. Some a bit muddy.
I really enjoyed doing this and it made me get my brushes wet again. They had such a shocked look on there little ferrules. :)
Thanks Tracy. Sure wish I were going along on that cruise next week.
doreenps . . . this whole thing looks a tad better in person. Wait . . . it looks ALOT better. :) The sky did not scan very well it is kind of wishy washy. SIGH. I tried, I learned and I enjoyed.
Well Doreen you succeeded!! Great Job!! Thank you for accepting the challenge!!
