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!
