I have finally brought this classic back around! You can find the link in my bio (underneath my photo on my Instagram page). I don’t know about you, but when it’s summer, I just want to be outside! The weather here has been perfect. Here’s to good weather, great friends and sunblock :) I hope your weekend is everything you need it to be ❤️
Happy Friday once again! This morning the Wild and Free Set is back in the shop. There aren’t many, so they will go quickly. There are also singles from many different sets. The link is in my bio.
This morning I’m on my way to breakfast with my family to say goodbye to my sister as she heads back home 😭 Can I just go back to bed after this? Haha. Saying goodbye is always so hard!
Very excited about the 2019 color of the year, a bright, grapefruity, warm pink that Pantone calls living coral. Swipe to compare three paint pairs that mix different versions:
Pyrrole red and benzimida yellow: No surprise that these two create a bevy of pretty oranges. Dilute this powerful red to make a pink, then add yellow to bring it to coral territory.
Quinacridone magenta and pyrrole orange: The magenta is a little purpley, so it needs a really vivid orange to make a watermelon shade. Pyrrole orange was already on my to do list for 2019, and now I’m even more excited to introduce it.
Neon pink and iso yellow: The oddest couple in the swatches, but I play with this neon flamingo color a lot and have come to love it. The marigoldy yellow tempers the fluorescent, but it still really pops.
How would you mix living coral?
So today when I got home from work I had a panic attack. My desk has been a mess since the beginning of October. Crowded with pigments, paint brushes markers jars & caked with layers of dried paint I hadn’t had time to clean up. This week has been a tough one to say the least. So I’m the midst of this panic attack I pulled my self together and started scraping away. Now it’s as good as ever, not good as new but better than it was. Literally like my life.... a complete mess. But in the ended it turned out just fine! Plus I got some pretty awesome #asmr cracking! So good things CAN come from a mess! Just some good for thought! #asmrcrunch#paintcrunch#asmrpaintcrunch#watercolor#paintmaker#immamess#messydesk#beforeandafter#mylife
Back to work in the studio. I’ve now got a heater so no more excuses about working in new colors. This is one I was working on this morning. A rich sparkling pink. I’ll be sure to post when it becomes available on Etsy. I think I’m in a PINK MOOD mode 😆
