Whoa- where did that week go? Just got caught up with your posts. How cool re: your grinding of the lapis lazuli- such a beautiful color although the word 'beautiful' cannot come close to describing it. The words ethereal, magical, haunting, mesmerizing and heavenly, when used collectively, come close- but I think that color is unto its own. You can't compare it to anything else on earth; you can only compare other things to it.Ah the rains- so welcome for us here in the parched northeast... hopefully it will help green us up and refill the vernal pools, too.~ gretchen
I was stunned with that depth of color in oil! Later today I will test the same pigment with egg tempera. I expect to see less saturation in the egg medium; I guess that would be normal, but the proof will be in the doing. More soon!
