We started with practicing colour mixing acrylics, using the primaries, black and white.
We mixed the secondary colours and then played with going lighter and darker.
Next we did some colour matching. When we were done, I used all the leftover paint for some art journal backgrounds. I love how this one turned out.
Next we moved into a value study, using just a light, mid and dark to create a simple object.
I worked on my favourite mug and Shannon painted Coney, this week’s Art Day mascot!
This simple exercise was a great practice in seeing and creating with light and shade.
It was an incredibly rich and productive Art Day!
