Upping the Ante




Yesterday I decided to up the ante on my painting explorations. I needed a few more colors for the exercises I've been working through in Betty Edwards' book Color. So I decided to move above the bottom-of-the-barrel student grade acrylics. I got a couple of mid-range paints and one rather nicer tube. Anyway, there is a huge difference and I think I might need to start saving the pennies for some more paint! :-)

Here's my completed color wheel. Basic stuff, but good for me - a bit like carrots or bananas.

In general, it really pays to invest in very good painting materials as the pigment load is so much better.
