I would like to share with you more of my color studies in green and red.
My intention is to get in the habit of daily watercolor and ink studies. I am inspired by the work habits of artist James Gurney. If you read his blog, you realize this person is constantly drawing or painting. I want this habit!
I’m also inspired by Leslie Saeta’s 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I’m thinking about joining in. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time. Why? I keep telling myself I want to increase production. This is one way to produce – commit to a painting a day.
Oh, I have been doing these studies daily; I just thought I’d post them three at a time.
Ink & Watercolor
I am putting extra effort in working with ink and watercolor. In August of 2016, I am to give a demo to an artist group using ink and watercolor. I want to be comfortable with the media.
Oh, why red and green? Traditional Christmas colors. Also, they are opposite colors on the color wheel. I think its helpful limiting color schemes. And, I like to practice, practice, practice! Yes, I’m continuing what I started with my previous post with my two choir girls.
The “geta” are souvenirs from Japan that my oldest sister gave me several years ago. The piggy is a Christmas ornament that another sister gave me a few years ago. And the goose came in a container of farm animal toys. This it the closest to a Christmas goose for us this year!
