Clay PotsThis was Thursday's class demo. We were mixing terracotta colors on the paper. We're thinking spring and summer here - have to be ready to paint flowers and pots.
We were using different variations of the primary colors - reds, yellows, and blues. Some were allowed to mix on the paper, some were mixed on the palette, some wet into wet and some on dry paper.
I used to paint these pots of flowers by the hundreds and sell them matted up in 10 X 10 white mats. They are fun to do, because no two are ever alike. This kind of makes me want to do them again.
It is snowing here and overcast. A couple of grandkids are making forts under my classroom/studio tables, so it is bright and cheery inside. The Christmas carols they're singing are kind of getting to me, but I'll keep my mouth shut.
