Learning to mix different shades from two base colors was very interesting! I REALLY fell in love with the steel blue that I got from mixing Titan RED and AZURE. Note to self... ALWAYS notate the colors used for future reference.

This activity was fun! Funny how I was able to doodle an illustration without thinking. One seems aggressive and the other calming.

I shall call this one "Letting go of perfection". I just took the time to watch paint playing on the paper and how different tones of color made for different mixes... Still have to master the art of planning color.

Aaaand for the final piece. I discovered how cool VS warm colors can play with depth on a piece of paper!

Thanks again, this was so much fun and I have a minute feeling of "controlling" my colors. Practice will definitely help!
