100 Day Project Wisdom
More Inspiration & Creative Vibes
Recently I traveled to New York and DC. I took my travel sketching things with me (plus a little extra because — really — who can resist?). As I was packing I used my handy-dandy no spills and no clogs tricks that you might be able to benefit from, too.
Yellow is my favorite color. It is the brightest color of the visible spectrum, and it is the most noticeable of all colors by the human eye. It means happiness and optimism; it is the color of sun shining; it is warmth and it is creativity. So, I am stoked to try out the new yellow paint Golden has just released.
In Laura Horn’s new online mini class, The Melting Pot, we playfully explored different ways of mark making using a variety of mixed media supplies including watercolor, ink, pastels, pens, pencil, and acrylic paint. As she said, “It’s a melting pot of mixed media goodness.”
Canvas, cardboard, art journal, paper, watercolor block, furniture — you name it, we’ll paint on it, right? One of my personal favorite substrates to paint on is an art board or wood panel. The smooth, hard surface is perfect to take all the abuse of a mixed media artist and look polished in the end. Today I’m giving up my secret source for cheap art boards.
