#17 Another colour exploration in the sister journals. This time my favourite paint colour, Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold. I got turned onto this when I picked it up as a supply for Julie Prichard's Layer Love class. It was love at first squeeze. (hmm, that sounds dirtier than I'd intended...but the alternative is "love at first stroke". Worse I think, eh?) I love the way it transforms other colours (especially phthalo blue). I love the way it can give an aged, grungy look, without diminishing the light and brightness of the piece. I love the way it can have so many different characters...from rich to dirty...dark and moody to warm and glowing. Love, love, love.
And now, I am off to a party at my sons' school. Their last SOS group meeting (social skills group for kids on the Autism Spectrum) this year. There are 5 of them in the group, all boys, all in Grade 4. They are a fascinating bunch of kids, and I am genuinely looking forward to it...plus there will be cupcakes.
