Playing with Color


 little bear


I am taking Danielle Donaldson's Class:

we are playing with colors
so much fun

there is an art to mixing watery color 
and 
not having it turn to mud

I haven't watched the lessons on doing her animals yet
but last night i drew and painted the little bear above

i think the spirit of the class is in my blood
that and 
wondering daily as to when our wild bears will wake up


I find it truly fun to play with colors

thank you Danielle!

  5. Playing with colours is great fun. Your colour squares are divine.
    Your bear painting is very unusual in these colours and I love the insect tickling his toes too.
    I expect your live bears will not be so friendly. Do they actually walk round by your house?

    In the colour-experiments I see flying white doves!

  11. I need to take that class just to learn about the color mixing if nothing else! Watercolor is tricky for me but I keep trying!

  12. Bonjour chère amie,

    J'adore cet ours avec ce petit papillon au bout de ses orteils !... Une harmonie de couleurs remplie de douceur qui apporte une poésie supplémentaire à ton sujet.
    Bravo l'artiste !

    Gros bisous ♡
