Give your paintings away...

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

The painting below was, well, okay. Nothing super special, at least to me so I decided to start a new trend. I think the Red Hot Chili Peppers said it best in their song (68 times!), Give It Away!

Looking at it again now after not seeing it for a while I find the blue section above the clouds intriguing. Mistaken spice? The blue happened all by itself. At least I do not remember putting it there. It was a fun mistake.

I was watching an Alan Owens video this morning and he mentioned in his video that Ultra-Marine Blue (Winsor & Newton) is a semi-opaque color that granulates. I can see that granulation now in this picture. I have never really noticed it before.

I do think I will try using Cobalt blue to see if the granulation goes away. It's good to change it up!
