Well, since I've been up since 4am and still have 2 hours before I have to leave to go to the workshop today, I worked on the photos I have and won't make you wait for them until this evening. I hope you enjoy this beautiful demo Carol did for us.
She worked on this painting the same way she did the spheres - one local/body color and then 2 other colors around the rim allowing them to blend and merge inwards and watching that you get the right blending.
So there is a blue one and a yellow one and a red one - but all three colors are used on all three, it just depends which one is the dominant body color.
Remember - pure colors make the paintings glow. Keep them as pure as possible by working wet-into-wet (very juicy wet) and putting in more of the same colors to darken and mold the shape more. Then let the paint dry but watch it as it does so you can catch anything happening that you don't want.
It's all about technique and control and when to know to control it and when to let the colors do their own thing. Carol is amazing!!!
Can't wait for another full day with another demo and then our final painting - which should be something close to us, that means something to us, that relates to us, our lives, our attitudes, etc...
Should be interesting to see what the others pick. I know what I'm going to do - and have to go off and draw it now.
