Color Mixing and Shapes

Color mixing and shapes made with 3 basic colors in the primaries (red, yellow, blue) - in this case I used Nickel Azo Yellow, Transparent Red Iron Oxide (or Quinacridone Burnt Orange) and Paynes Gray - painting those out in various squares and then added bits of black and white to each color, this was all mixed right on the page,  not on a palette, so amazing the variations in the color range that emerged. This is especially good to do on those rare occasions when you don't know what to do next. It's all about Playing and enjoying that to the fullest, right here right now, this moment, that brush and what it does with those colors. If you really just Play and sink into it, then you have this Experience and that's always the best, you can't buy that Experience, it belongs to you  . . .
