The Mastering Color course I'm taking, has me mixing all my colours of paint. This gives me a greater appreciation for what the paint will do but it sure does leave me with a lot of brushes to clean. The colour charts I have afterwards make it worth while though... a lot less mixing time needed now.
My drawing courses have been more reading and looking at pictures then actual drawing. This week coming, I can see a lot of work scheduled in the practice department.
The picture I've posted is one I painted back when I used acrylics, about seven years ago. A limited edition giclee of it will be auctioned at the Willow Park Youth Missions Auction on Sunday night at seven. I hope they have a good turn out.
