After six weeks of painting boxes, it's time for a break. I felt like I was hiding out in my exercises. After all, how will I every learn how to paint if I don't paint? But of course, I do recognize the benefits of training exercises. In fact, I used some of that mixing experience here.
I've been reading Making Colors Sing by Jeanne Dobie. I'd thought that I'd try out some topics from that book and I did get there in a roundabout fashion here--background glazing with yellows and violets to push the brighter violets to the foreground. More on that book and its ideas to come.
