I finally managed to finish two more drawings for my Joey story. I painted these two at the same time so I could make the colors match on the desks and the walls.
Even though I make notes about colors I mix, they don’t always come out the same.
Browns are hard. Most times I mix Sap Green and Alizarin Crimson. Then I throw in some Quin Gold or maybe a touch of blue. A little of this and that. Pretty soon, I have the perfect shade of brown but I forgot how I made it!
Of course, I could just buy “brown” paint!! But I like to do things the hard way ☺
These two photos are from an assignment we did at Year of the Spark. They are called Threaded Thoughts. I made a list of “things” I do in my studio.
The example we were shown in class was machine stitched together. I have two sewing machines but neither is in good working condition. Every time I sew anything, there is lots of swearing involved!
So I found a different solution to piece them together.
