Hello Stencil Lovers!
I have something a little different this time.
I used Mary Beth Shaw's Circle on Circle stencil
to space some nice sized circles for color swatches.
She encourages her students to draw everything and to make color charts....
among other things....
Since Ken Oliver generously sent us an entire set of the Color Burst Paints
I decided to add them into my Sketchbookery line up.
It was time to play with colors.
Above are the three primary and 3 secondary colors in order
On my paint pallet I sprinkled just a little bit of pigment powder in every color...
into one pile.....then added a bit of water...and the center color is what I got.
But then I kind of knew I would get a gray or brown if I mixed all the colors together.
I experimented with mixing colors and adding salt to some....
And then I drew my little bottles.
They are colorful little soldiers standing tall.
I used a black and a gray Sharpie Marker to add details.
But all that shading and coloring is Ken's Color Burst Paints.
The Violet powder is so intense it almost looks black all by itself.
I had tried to pour equal amounts of each color out onto the paint pallet.
Note to self: use less violet!
This was a lot of fun and I look forward to a lot more experimentation.
