Chromatology study

"Colour is fascinating and deceiving.  What we see and what we think we see aren't always the same, and depending on what it is next to, also influences what we see, as I am learning only too well, lol."

Karen Ilari replied to Marion's discussion Untamed River - palette knife and 2" brush
"You are welcome Marion! And a 1" brush isn't that small for a painting this size! It may have more to do with setting a stroke, adjusting the edge if needed, and then leaving it be. You may be "petting the canvas" which…"

"Haha, I know exactly how you feel! Don't despair! Think of all the things you are learning with this one! It is a lot more fun when I let go of the idea that each painting has to be a perfect one and focus instead on what I'm learning.…"

"Update. I don't even know where to start...I thought I was off to such a good start and now I just want to make it stand in a corner until it promises to behave. Started with the water, brush strokes too small, then too wide, water colour too…"

Profile Information

How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
I have only been painting since 2013. Took a class and one of the first things the teacher said, was : anyone can learn to paint, you just have to practice. Wow! Magic words. Always thought talent was just born, not created and learned. Sewing, quilting and fabric art have been part of my life for as long as I can remember.
What other mediums have you used?
Mixed media, fabric. Tried watercolour, but not for me.
Are their specific things you would like to learn?
Everything, lol. Fascinated by colour, how to use, theory, etc. Brush strokes, palette knife techniques.
Where did you learn about this website?
You tube....typed in how to paint....
