Color Mixing in my SketchbookI have probably posted small geraniums a million times, but . . . here are some more. I haven't used cobalt blue in a long time, and I think I've really been missing out. In real life (as opposed to photographing and posting) the cobalt blue in these mixes really glows.
I used cobalt blue and quinacridone red on each of the geraniums and switched out the yellows - using New Gamboge, Hansa Yellow, and Quinacridone Gold.
There are some beautiful roses on my work table just waiting to be painted. They are kind of a cantaloupe color. Gorgeous! I guess I am a little intimidated by the color and I am not a rose painter, but they aren't going to last much longer. What would happen if I failed? We all know absolutely nothing would happen! I would have had the fun of splashing around in paint. I would have loved drawing them and looking at the lights and shadows of that wonderful color. Just go do it.
What holds us back?
