I think I mentioned that I was doing this Challenge... well this month's 'object' was sandals! I thought this subject was going to be the death of me, but actually, I survived. These are 'going out' sandals for me, and we're just going to say that's a French Pedicure. I was focusing on color for this, and trying a 'triad' - with the gold from the sandals being the significant color, and the other 2 parts of the triad were the blue-y green (grayed down a bit) and the violet. Interesting, to me, as I've never really tried this before.
And I don't know if I've ever shared my palette with you, but here we are - I have a rolling kitchen cart that I put waxed paper on about once a month, held in place with duct tape (or duck tape, whichever you prefer). It takes 2 sheets, one for the top and one for the bottom, and I just tuck the edges in and tape more. It's easy to clean up. My colors are (and this is a little enhanced, I usually only have about 7 or 8 colors on it) from left to right: Burnt Umber, Pthalo Blue, Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Permanent Rose, Alizarin Crimson, Cad Red Light, Cad Orange, Cad Yellow light, Cad lemon and 3 squiggles of Titanium White. And those are one of my pairs of Atlas Gloves - super to work with - 'so flexible you can pick up a dime'... really, and with mesh in the back, they are breathable, and don't make your hands sweat.
And this... well, a gift to all of you, tonight's sunset sky.Pin It
