Playing: A Color Study

Messing around a couple of weeks ago--fun to see how the colors blend--this is an example of visual blending (as opposed to physical blending). These paints are transparent, and each layer is dry before painting the next one is applied--an area appears green because the light shines through successive layers of yellow and blue and yellow and blue etc.

Sorry. Always the teacher, I guess.

Oh, neat. I like the end result. Sometimes studies can end up being works of art in their own right.

Transparent paint, who knew?
I like the lessons here. Thanks for sharing. I agree with Kelly, maybe you'll cut this up for collage material.
