I'm taking another painting course online with Mati + Lisa. I talked about it last week.
I have my painting supplies set up at home in the kitchen because it has great light and it works better for me to work there that at the studio.
I love having it all right there when I walk by. I am constantly reminded that I am painting and creating art. An artist in the making? We'll see.
So far my process has been to collect inspiration for my paintings, select my color palette and record it.
- I printed out my inspiration and taped it up by my painting area, then I discovered a color palette based on my inspiration photos.
- I went to the store and selected paint chips based on my selected color palette. This way I have something to try and match when mixing my paints.
- I also made a color notebook to keep track of colors I love. I covered it with a sample painting I did when I was trying to see if I could mix the colors I wanted.
Mixing colors is fun and frustrating at the same time. I enjoy it and find it a fun challenge. It is tricky, but cool when I get it right!
