Last night I was in the studio when my daughter Sarah came in asked if she could paint too. I was pleasantly surprised. She's almost 18 and I don't think she has asked that since she was in the early years of elementary school. Anyway I said, "Sure!, what would you like to paint?" She said she didn't care, "...lets just paint something together." So I fetched two painting surfaces and chose a palette that I thought would be fun for this exercise. It was Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine, Cadmium Orange, Cobalt Turquoise, Alizarin Crimson and Thalo Green. I created a dark Sepia hue by mixing Ultramarine and Burnt Sienna, then poured it around in various locations on the surface. I showed Sarah how to move the pigment around to catch some of the sides so as not to center anything but all the while leaving some valuable white space. Next we added Cadmium Orange and Cobalt Turquoise in various locations. Finally, we pulled it together using a Gray made from Alizarin Crimson, Thalo Green and gesso. These two paintings are our results.
