How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
Did art in school, occasionally tried my hand at it as an adult, usu. gave up in frustration. Then my sis offered to do a painting together as she had been taking some acrylic art lessons...from that first painting I was hooked again, but this time with more confidence. Plus, the advent of the internet and having access to free video help on You Tube, and now Karen's website - AWESOME!
The "Going Green" posts are in the General Discussions folder, and can easily be found by going back one or two pages.
Your original comment was in one of Karen's demos, with the river. That dates back to July. Your post mentioned using Yellow Ochre or Yellow Oxide, and I just wanted to make sure you realized these are two distinct colours. A lot of people seem to think they are the same.
Cindy - I just noticed your July query to Karen about yellows. (I don't visit that section of the site very often!).
Yellow Ochre and Yellow Oxide are both iron oxide pigments, but are not the same. Oxide is a synthetic pigment and decidedly more yellow than the Ochre. I posted a topic a couple weeks back ("Going Green") that shows both of these straight from the tube and mixed with Phthalo blues to get nice earthy greens. I have also used both of these to get some nice sand colours for beaches.
