Water Media Class

1)Charlie, the teacher, and another student.
2)Me, doing an exercise. The exercise was to learn about color
mixing. I did some blocks of it and then 3)painted the entire picture
from three colors, red, blue and yellow. I used no green, brown,
black, grey etc. It was my first time ever doing that. I was kind of
excited and pleased, though it's no great shakes. I hope I learn to
be better.

The picture is of Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate
NY, from memory--I had nothing to look at. I used to go there as a
kid and camp at Roger's Rock.

You really have a good time with that stuff, don't you. I have always wanted to paint and draw, but I have NO talent. Well, in art anyway.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

He he, so what do you have talent in?

The way to develop art is to do it, like anything else.

I'll keep developing my already considerable talents. Practice, practice, practice, sleep.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I read that in order to be an adept, you need a minimum of 10,000 hours of practice. Do you mean sleep sleep or . . . ?

10,000 hours of that could be tiring.

LOL! these comments distracted me, and made me forget what I was going to say.

Oh yeah... just using the primary colors, and then painting from memory! I'm impressed!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Too bad the painting isn't better, lol, but I am very pleased with the COLORS I created using only blue, red and yellow, nothing else--it doesn't look like blue red and yellow! YAY!

The Adirondacks is one of the prettiest places on earth.
