When you're looking at mixing colors with primaries, try to remember little changes can have a big impact. Adding the tiniest amount of magenta to your yellow can make it much warmer and brighter. Adding a small amount of white to your magenta can make it much pinker. Primary colors are red yellow and blue. Secondary colors are green purple and orange. You lighten or "Tint" a color using white. You " Shade"  or darken the color using black.  In this set Magenta is the red. All of the colors can be a little bit transparent because they're modern colors. You may ask yourself, "What if I don't have the exact color I see her painting with?" My answer to you would be don't worry, use what you have. You get a  slightly different result than I do, but you will essentially get the same painting. I include the colors that I use so you can know exactly what is happening. The worksheet above is created to give you a quick reminder about how we get Turquoise using the Phthalo blue  Phthalo green.  Also how we get Gradients for the sky and the Mountain

The Brush Off

In our Pinners kit we included our Cats Tongue #8. I wanted to show how one brush can do all of a painting. Of course you can use the brushes you have. That said, whatever you use in this painting the direction and curve of the Brush stroke will help create the illusion of form in your painting. When you interweave the sky, do have a small amount of curve to your back and forth stroke. Don't over curve and try to avoid being stick straight. Think of your sky as a living, evolving thing. Think about those times as a kid you laid down in the soft grass and gazed up to the clouds. Can you remember the dance and movement. How much life was above you. As artists we don't actually capture a still moment. We capture the feeling, the life, and the movement in the moment. By adding the curve into the sky we see and wind and meteorology of the day. Gesture in art is the life of the painting. 


The term "gestural painting", also known as "gesturalism", . In art what we mean is expressive brushstrokes  emphasizing the movement within the art and the hand of the artist . This is how the Brushstroke  expresses the artist's emotions and personality just like a person's gestures reflect their feelings in everyday life.

Look at these gesture Drawings of Dance. Can you See the feeling of the movement? Everything has gesture. Trees, mountains and even a road.
