Exercise 19 - Grays and neutrals from yellow and violet with orange-yellow and mixed bright red -violet. Winsor Lemon, French Ultramarine, and Permanent Rose.
These exercises open me to color. Not so much my brighter mixes... I am attracted to subdued colors and all their subtle variations. I get the urge to paint "something", not just my little three quarter inch squares, but I will continue to put my time into daily exercises. Soon enough I will be shifting focus--the water color course is due up in a month or so, leaving me just enough time to complete the book's fifty exercises.
But isn't this enough to do? Well... You know how it is... I've just become a bit interested in Paleolithic art--cave painting. Look at those wonderful earth tones. Truly earth tones. I'd love to learn to mimic the look. I suspect my library will soon be growing. But for now, I'm digging up web resources.
