Yes, I am still alive…

April 29, 2007 § 5 Comments

…only that I am feeling so uninspired at the moment. I started a portrait in colored pencil, but I do not know what to do with the background, so I can’t continue it.

I followed the discussion in the forum about transparent watercolors. Until now I never considered painting with transparent colors only. (Again I learned sth. new) So I searched my transparent wc and tried mixing everyone of it with each other. For results please have a look at the mixing table below.

    WOW! Now that is a ton of work — but what a handy chart to hve around! How about using some of that work on a mini painting — just to get the juices flowing?

    I’m with Lin – now I’m waiting for the painting!

    Silvia – you are a woman after my own heart – this is just the sort of thing I do. Actually I think I like them because they look better than my actual watercolours 🙂 I just like losing myself in the colours.

    I love looking at all of these colors. I’d love to know whether you mixed the paints on the palette or on the paper (i.e. glazing)?

    Since those colors are all transparent I tried mixing them on paper this time. I laid down the color on the left first let it dry and then glazed it with the color on the top.
