Made in China
Made in China
8x6in oil on canvas panel $125.
It was interesting to get into hard objects - all made in China.
I own some beautiful pieces, but the blue bowl is on loan from a good friend.
I have painted it quite a few times - using different techniques. I like them all.
My hubby is great at using chopsticks but I still have not
caught on to the trick of not dropping the food before it hits the mouth.
These chopsticks have a beautiful design on them.
A little bit of structure today after painting soft flowers for a
couple of days, plus I used more subdued colors.
It is the same palette as yesterday - Red, Yellow
and Blue, but worked so the complement colors have been worked
into them to tone each color down.
I mixed an orange to tone down the blue just a wee bit.
I mixed a warm purple to tone down the yellow background
and after mixing the green for the leaves, I mixed it into the red.
