I spent the entire day with my cigar box filled with parts of trumpet valves. What a luxury! I’ve become addicted to my own game.
I’ve often wondered, when standing before a painting executed with brilliant and bizarre colors, how the artist came up with such combinations. Reality had far too tight a hold on me without my knowing it. I neither saw the exciting color, nor did I feel I had a spring board from which to leap into the glorious world of invention.
When putting together the Color Scheme Game I was concerned that it might be too contrived. It’s just plain easy …. and fun.
I had drawn so many Oxalis leaves that my hand began drawing them without my eye looking at them. I needed to take a break from them. I grabbed a small, silver ladle from a drawer.
First Throw = Nine ( Basic Triad Color Scheme)
Second Throw = Eight (Dominant Color, Purple/Red) leaving me with Purple/Red, Blue/Green and Yellow/Orange)
Sketchbook Drawing: Drawn first with Noodler’s Flex Pen filled with mystery brown ink, followed by watercolor. I like the brown ink blending into the color in the spoon handle detail.
