Landscape

I really love this little landscape. It sort of sums up my vision of the world away from a city.

When I was working on it, I discovered that by using a palette knife I could mix up colors as though they were paints and really get the color I want in small amounts. That is how I got that interesting purple color in the stems. I just mixed fuchsia, cobalt and a bit of zinc yellow.

I am thinking that you could actually paint that way with the clay. Maybe later. Right now I am enjoying these heat set paints. if you haven't tried them you should. Karen at Clay Alley sells small sampler packs and they seem to last a good long while.

I am trying to limit my computer time so back to work.

This is beautiful Roberta. And the use of the palette knife-well-you know I love that too.

Thanks Ann. I feel myself drifting slowly back to painting and enjoying the wonderful feeling.
