In class Tuesday, I did another pour (after removing and then reapplying misket - Sandy said my first pour of misket was too linear and hard-edged - the trick is to have really moving, organic shapes with the misket). I used Hansa Yellow Deep, Quinacridone Red, and Phthalo Blue (Green Shade) - all Daniel Smith pigments. Poured, waited for it to dry, and poured the next color. Awful pale so when I came home I poured again - same colors but bolder. Then I was thinking of burning...and started painting. I added India Ink to this, too.
To Burn Without Being Consumed
I also, while waiting for the colors in the first pour to dry, went back to the gators - with help from Sandy and others who talked about the values and how to leave whites and darks not all over but just in some areas (don't think I accomplished that yet - and am going to stop apologizing for not being where I want to be with my art - it's just where I am right now).
Doubt if I'll be painting today - have such a sinus headache and pressure (we had some wild winds come through and storms last night but we are safe and didn't lose power).
Plus, I have some cleaning to do, too.
So - maybe later I'll look at these again and work on them a bit more.
Today is my artist friend Joy's birthday - she lives in Australia too close to the massive fires in Victoria. I am hoping that her birthday present is a house and property that is still standing and family and friends that are safe. I think she has either evacuated or their power is out.
