Bird, Bottle, Egg, Round Two, 6x6"

It's time for me to move on. I've learned that this bird has a tricky face to paint, when I look directly at it. I've learned that "white" and I don't get along just yet. But, I'm about to embark on a color adventure, with play and discovery through exercises my main goal. Color charts? Maybe not yet!

I discovered Kathryn Townsend,, who's been creating wonderful paintings using a limited palette, based on Peggy Kroll Roberts' dvds: Kathryn's observations about what she's learning are also interesting. I love that I'll be able to paint still lifes while learning about color in a more systematic way. If you have ideas on how to learn more about color, feel free to share. I hope the links I've included here work!

Just writing in to say that I really enjoy Kathryn's work also. I have been following along as she watches Peggi's DVDs and her observations have been instructive. I haven't purchased the DVDs yet but Peggi teaches close by to where I live. Maybe a class in in my future?:):)

Stay warm:)
