I’ve been finished a few pages in my Dina Wakley journal. This one is almost complete, except for odd pages here and there. I want to get the original one next time, not the blue one, just for a change. This started with insects, then I added the person, then added the insects back over the top again. Not my favourite ever, but doing it was good for me!
I’ve been doing a #100dayproject on index cards, playing with colour mixing. It’s a lot of fun, and doesn’t take much time, but with 21 days to go I’m taking a short break. Tony’s not doing very well so I need to concentrate on other things until we have his pain under control.
In the meantime, here’s some previous ones … I love seeing all the colours together.
Again, this makes me happy, and I used my fingers. The background is Reeves pale olive, and the swipe is Golden teal and Indian yellow hue.
Using my fingers to smear the paint, which makes me happy. This is more purple red than it shows. The background is Reeves pale olive with Golden Indian yellow and quinacridone violet.
The way the dark paint sort of stutters along the top of the yellow – the mark making pleases me. The background is very thin Atelier indigo with Golden hansa yellow light and Golden ultramarine violet.
God I love these colours together! The background is Daler Rowner purple applied thinly, with a little Winsor Newton winsor blue mixed in with my finger. The swipe is Golden hansa yellow light.
Again love the light and movement – in real life, this is more mauve than red but I give up re the scanning. Atelier forest green and Winsor Newton winsor blue applied fairly lightly and sort of scratched on. The swipe is Winsor Newton quinacridone red violet and titanium white.
Again, using my fingers and loving the feel. Not sure why I stopped using my fingers, because I do love feeling what I am doing. This is Atelier indigo with Golden teal and Indian yellow.
I started using my fingers to move the paint around and it feels so good. This is lovely and light. Reeves pale olive, Atelier quinacridone red violet and Reeves pale powder blue.
The light in this pleases me so much. Atelier forest green and Winsor Newton winsor blue, with Daler Rowney purple and a lot of white.
