Colors and Textures....

I love experimenting with color and textures, so I bought some new colors. You really need to play with them and see how they mix together. Sometimes they mix well and other times they can become muddy. It depends on how many colors they used to create the mix of a color in a tube. When I saw these new colors I couldn’t resist trying them. I did a painting and I found that a good potion of my painting came pretty good, but another didn’t. So I cropped with a mat I cut and used the portion that I liked. Yes, you are allowed to do that. Every painting is a new experience and sometimes we make mistakes, but that’s how we learn. It cropped so well that I printed this painting and made some lovely magnets.
