...and greens and yellows and reds and.... . I can't tear myself away from these paints! Right now, I'm mostly playing with the colors out of the tube and seeing what's what. After that, there's a lifetime of mixing. I wish I were a cat, because I'm pretty sure I only have what's left of THIS one lifetime. Still, I've starting some mixing---you'll see it in the pods painting and a chart I'm posting as evidence of my obsession, I mean, earnestness. Speaking of obsessiveness, I'm compelled to tell you that the vase in the blue sketch is narrow and elliptical in real life. The vase is a Swedish design---it's not a wonky drawing of a cylindrical shape.
Here's a chart where I'm trying to figure out how on earth I'd ever use Schmincke's helio turquoise. It is SO intense and charged! Turns out it mixes beautifully with manganese violet and indigo and venetian red and sepia brown!
In the midst of all of this, I'm figuring out which of the colors in the set, other than black, I'm going to omit---and which from my old palette I'm going to add. I have at least one more post on this subject, so bear with me!
