Totally love the directions for Project 1 of this lesson, particularly the part in parentheses: make a bunch (one precise bunch) of patterns using several different tools and materials.
One precise bunch, comin' up!
In the demo video Jane uses white paper but (a) I've been hankering to mess around with neutrals and (b) I've been hankering to move a big paint-filled brush freely across clean paper.
So. Used up some paint from my stay-wet palette to create one swatch. Then, mixed ultramarine blue and vivid red orange for the next few swatches, adding titanium white in increments along the way. Finally, blended chromium oxide green and permanent alizarin crimson, again adding titanium in increments.
Very satisfying, curled up edges notwithstanding—had to wrestle them into submission to snag a photo. Love the creamy soothing neutrals.
