This is the result of my first “automatic” drawing for my Expressive Drawing workshop. (Just me in my studio!) It is 3 x 4 feet. You are instructed to stand with a paint brush loaded with paint held as if you are fencing. then you make a mark on the paper.
Then, stand back six feet, look at it and think of what you would like to do next, etc etc, until it seems finished.
And, of course the final drawing is up at the top. It was fun!
Then, I worked on color mixing with the colorhue dyes. I was on a quest to get brown. I was told to add green and yellow to the purplish brown. Here is what I got. I am happy.
And that yellow green? Oh my goodness, I love that. It happened in my first mix. I wasn’t happy with the brown that I got so I added more yellow – to much for brown, but what a happy accident it was.
One of my students wondered if she would be able to do a creamy color. I diluted the brown and I am quite happy with these two colors.
I also did some work on the black hole. It is coming along.
