The corollary of my last exploration is that now I am using ultramarin blue anywhere and everywhere. I suppose one could say this is the "blue period". Maybe after I am dead, somebody will stumble upon these records lost in the electronic world and think that indeed a blue period begun. Wouldn't that be fun!
More terre-a-terre, I used a photo from my vacation to sketch the same scene multiple times. Three times to be exact. One using two opposite colors, then directly to brush using Mona's UB and finally continuous pen line.
I used the paint that dried up on the porcelain plate used for mixing. I am curious to see if the mixed paint looks any different. While I like the color, I think that the paint is not transparent enough. I need to do more research before the next attempt to make paint. But that won't be any time soon ...
