Today's lesson at the Art Club was "color matching". That's when we take little squares of random colors from magazines and tape them to a piece of canvas, then 'match' the color - it always has to be mixed, and even the most veteran painter can have a bit of a struggle. After everyone successfully matched their colors up we painted - from life, or a photograph, if they preferred ... but we made sure to 'match' the color correctly. Our room was filled with silver pitchers of roses and hydrangeas from a recent wedding. I grabbed this lovely bouquet - then instantly regretted it because I hardly ever paint flower bouquets.... but is really enjoyed it and just was fearless about all those petals and colors!
Sunday was the Hingham Arts Walk - it was a blast being with my art buddies from the South Shore, and seeing 'blast from the past' friends who stopped by! One lovely woman insisted I looked ten years younger than the last time she saw me - and that alone was worth the whole day! Thank you Page Railsback for hosting and doing all that work for the Arts Walk, you rock!Pin It
