Bright Flowers in Pots


Just still painting along every day that I can. At times I feel like I am on a roller coaster...at times flying by the seat of my pants and other times chugging up a giant hill. But I love oil paint, what it does and how it moves now that I am becoming acquainted with it. My color charts have been extremely helpful. I check them all the time to see if I can find a color. If you can do some color charts then your painting will go much easier. Richard Schmid says that he still uses his (at least when he did his videos he did.

If you are interested on how I did these color charts then leave me a message and let me know. I could do a free video tutorial. They are good for acrylic and watercolor but of course I would be using oil paint. If there is enough interest then I will do it.  I am not sure how many of my blog friends and visitors are oil painters. But I bet most all of you use some sort of paint in some kind a way!

I'd like to see your color charts :) I use mostly acrylic, but I'm sure it could be useful either way. I am loving what you're doing!

love the pots, I loved your watercolor pots, too! I would love to see a tutorial - I use watercolors and acrylics however...I used to use oils but didn't have the patience to wait for them to dry and the odor used to bother me. good wishes...

I think it would be great to have a tutorial. I have chart book for my watercolors, pencils and markers and use them all the time. Just love anything that you do!

Ditto to all the posts so far! Love your work, and I'm sure creating a color chart in watercolor, acrylic, or oil (not my favorite!) would be useful! Thanks, Martha.

Definitely do the color studies. My first oil teacher had us use a very limited palette of 5 colors...and made us do a color study...it was amazing what we got from just a hand full of paint!
