Today I was tempted not to paint since I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning, and my workday was already half gone when I sat behind my desk. But I painted something really quick, with Green Gold and Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold, and Indian ink and crayons.
I asked myself why I always use Quin Gold and Green Turquoise. I was looking for my crayons to pick the best color to use on top of the Quin Gold, and again I ended up with Green Turquoise (teal).
I wondered why. I simply like them of course, but what I also like is the contrast they make. The warm and the cold color make each other stronger.
Thanks, Dotty! Am looking forward to what I will find on YOUR blog today!
Simone, that little bit of green gold with the quin gold is very appealing here—it makes this piece come together. As I muck about in my studio with a fussy project that is decidedly NOT coming together, your quick splash of creativity is an invitation.
