Color and Texture
Lesson 3 of my online composition class was all about color and texture. We had to create oversize swatches and play with different textures. I think they look so good together like colorful italian tiles. I particularly like the feel and look of the matte medium applied over paint and then painted over again. I have to remember to use that technique in my paintings, it gives it a lot of depth. Then we had to create a simple layout with 3 colors only. It was very interesting to start with a color with the intention of painting over it and just let it peak through. Gave me some good ideas to do some faux finishes too!
