Demonstration & Discussion Series 2 Video: Emotional Color Painting
Recommendations for Emotional Color Painting:
Turn phones off and be sure cats and dogs are relaxed and/or sleeping. Use
arches 140 cold press paper and tube paints. Make a border with 3m masking
tape. Start on wet or dry paper. I typically start wet on dry paper with a thin
color and add thicker color into it. Put a color in one one area and put more
of the color again in the same area, double coating to keep wet. Look at
paper frequently to see how wet it is. Overall work with thinner mixtures in
glossy water, thicker, drier mixtures into the drying surface. To lift lines and
areas of color, use a damp, knife-like edge of a synthetic flat 3/4 inch
Half way through painting ask yourself:
Did I stick to one color scheme?
What is my composition?
Did I use the techniques I practiced?
Enjoy, remembering to give yourself positive feedback! -Julie
