Color Theory – Various Combinations


This was one boring week.  Not the least was this project which took a full day to complete.  Why?  Because we had to mix our own paints and had to use a specific mixture of color combinations (complements, split complements, and the brown is a mix of 2 complements.)

Let’s just leave it at:

  • I don’t like acrylics because they dry very quickly
  • I don’t like acrylics on watercolor paper because it does not allow for a smooth line
  • I don’t like acrylics because blending is very difficult
  • I don’t like acrylics because they are globby if you want to cover the white (and then they dry and leave little white speckles…not sure what is going on with that!)
  • I don’t like acrylics because you can not achieve a smooth line
  • I don’t like acrylics
