Get Your Paint On : Week 1

Our first assignment of Get Your Paint On is to draw inspiration from Gee's Bend quilters of Alabama.

In our class we could choose between gouache or acrylic. I painted with gouache "a little" in a college and from time to time I paint with that medium still so I decided to go with that for my first painting.

I really wanted to use a color scheme that was something that I wouldn't normally think of. I was inspired by a selection of colors in a Pantone book, called Woodland colors. I really liked the woody tone mixed with hot and bright colors too. It was really fun to do something geometric and with really no planning, which is so not me. I really enjoyed it. :)

Can't wait for our next assignment on Monday!


  1. Your painting looks great :) I like the color scheme...Big fan of Pantone :)

  2. I love it! Looks great — hope you're enjoying the class. I'm jealous!

  3. Thanks so much Nicole! I am so thankful you told me about it! It's exactly what I needed.
