Felt so good today
to teach the painting class how to mix their own flesh tones. We mixed ochres and sienna's and blues and whites and umbers and alizarin and yellow and a little this and a little that. Then I got to do a quick demo! Not an exact likeness but that wasn't the point. The point was experimentation and leaping faith... to look closely in the corners, analyze the surface reflections, dance with the brush...ahh! The lovely sounds of palette knives scraping and bristles soothing canvas!
