After realizing I had exceeded my media storage, it didn’t take much to decide on the upgraded version of WordPress as the path of least resistance. So here (at last) is the post I began to write earlier.
I’ve been schooling myself in color as a result of Tansy Hargan’s watercolor class. Of course, me being me, I haven’t exactly followed her project directions. Rather, I watched how she does what she does and then went off to try my own version.
First I purchased a 24-color set of Inktense blocks, two ceramic palettes, and some paint brushes. Then I ironed pieces of white cotton cloth to freezer paper and marked grids of twenty-four 1/2” squares, one for each of the dyes.
Standing at our bar-height counter, I was determined to mix every color with every other color …
24 by 24, which equals 576 little blocks …
I’ve gotten better with practice, so I’m actually redoing some of the early blocks.
And yes, the colors do run a bit, which means I just have to figure out how best to make that an asset rather than a liability.
