Saturday, Cathy Johnson posted some outtakes from her Sketchbook Skool class, a video on Mixing Greens. I put it on in the background while I was stitching, thinking I knew how to mix greens. Never say you KNOW. I learned tips which will allow me to mix from a small palette, the oranges and blue. I mixed my favorites “oranges and blues” to see the greens a small traveling palette might make, below. Some are muddy
(but also valuable) and some are amazing!
My Milk Bone was supposed to be drawn to go with my post, “I Was a Dog Growing Up.”
Work got in the way . . . And Sketchbook Skool. I posted my lessons on SBS Week One
this week, then after I posted realized I really like this wash and ink suggestion of
Danny Gregory’s (he calls it “fast and slow.”) I continue to create these, and they are a lovely way to loosen me up and not to be dependent on my beloved pencil!
I took a “wash” photo and an “ink” photo of a project in our studio right now to show how this was done. Caution note: If someone can MOVE what you are about to draw (or take it apart) then best take a picture. Mitchell is about to restore the spool platform rocker
below, and between my wash (drying, I went to lunch) and ink, he dismantled half of it!
I am not sure when I will be posting normal painting thangs.
After Sketchbook or when I am not overwhelmed with a project!
