Red + red + metallicYES, I love reds so this wil be fun. This were my first reaction to this weeks colors, but then..........
A rose and no greens?......... no. What excactly can I do with two reds and a metallic, and I do allow myself to use white and black/grey in addition. It was hard to come up with something to do, but finally I had an idea coming my way.
Some glas balls would work. I prepared a "canvas", one hard cover from an old book covered with old book pages. My intention was to make two balls in an orangeish red and two in a more pinkish red and the last one in gold. It turned out being a mess and I added red to the gold one too. Not good, so I started a new one.
This time I went for some real marbles, all red but still marbles. And why I didn't think of doing one marbel in gold I can't understand now. It was probably because of the first try, I guess.
While in the phone with a friend I added gold to the background, and regretted it the minute it was done. Wash over with clean water and pick up as much as possible. It is not the result I had hoped for, but I'm not going to do it all over once more.
I will do a piece with marbles again, but then I'll use colors of my own choice. It was much fun painting them, but the background should have been left white. Lesson learned. And as said, why didn't I add another marble and used gold for that?
Except this weeks colors, I've used white and paynes gray.
Good luck everyone! Linking to SOC 5
