Color Mixing Dots 1

Artist’s Date Week 2 (6/14/2020)

I did more color mixing. Dots this time. I even recorded the process and learned how to do voice overs in iMovie. I’m pretty proud of myself for not only doing the artist’s date, but also thinking ahead enough to record it.

I tried to take out all the bits where I was mixing off camera, but I missed a few. If you knew how long it took me to figure out my lap top doesn’t have a built in microphone, even though I was already aware of that fact, you’d be proud of me for accomplishing this, too.

My date was to try another assignment from The New Color Mixing Companion (the link is an affiliate link) that I used last week, too. I wanted to practice a new layout for my color theory sketchbooks and I wanted to play with my travel palette.

I like the book a lot and it is lovely to look at, but I wish there was a bit more to it. Maybe it’s because this is only my second exercise and I didn’t read the whole thing right off the bat…and I’m also skipping around…and not really new to color theory, but I just want more. I’m also starting with the projects that I want to do and not necessarily the ones I “need” to do so it’s probably me and not the book.

I was thinking, maybe combining the lessons in this book and Color Harmony For Artists, might be a nice idea. (That link is also an affiliate link.)

Anyway, here’s the video. I will warn you, it’s over 20 minutes, but if you need to relax and want to zone out to me mixing some paint and making dots, it’s literally your only option. Check out that voice over work. Amiright?!
