Playing with Grays

GraysToday I felt like I needed to put down on canvas all the variations of gray I can mix. In actuality, this isn’t even a fraction, but I wanted an assortment of grays leaning towards another color, like a gray purple, or gray green.  Gray is really just any color that has some amount of all 3 primaries. This is a valuable lesson to grasp!  I think it is one of the things I have found most helpful in my progress. I still need work here.

About Artwithmycoffee

I live in Juneau, Alaska where the inspiration in nature abounds! I love taking photos of this beautiful place and then painting them. In 2013 I left my job in order to devote more time to my artwork. One of the ways I have been learning, is through online tutorials. I have been so encouraged with the amount of information that people share about their artwork. A few of my favorite sites are: Tuscon Art Academy on line, mhttp://thecompleteartist.ning.com/ by Richard Robinson, and http://www.dailypaintworks.com/ with Carol Marine. These have been extremely helpful as I have been working at my painting. This year my goal is to paint almost daily and to try to get outdoors more and paint en plein air (or out doors from life). I also hope to come up with something interesting to blog about it all ( =
