#6 Can You Believe That?

#6 of the challenge. I love painting birds.  I started out using indanthrone blue and so a lot of the top colors have the blue mixed in to some degree (like the last several paintings). I think it gives unity/harmony throughout a painting, and also provides some unknown results depending on the degree of dryness and how much mixes in. I am pulling out the oils now and will use this technique with oils-a whole different thing.

  1. Laurie, I love Indanthrone Blue - I like how you used it throughout the painting. These birds have attitude!

  2. 1. Never knew Indanthrone Blue existed till now!
    2. I almost succumbed to getting clothes out of the drier but then I thought, Wait! I can go see what Laurie has painted up for me!
    3. One of your gifts: the ability to create a simple unfussy composition/scene with all sorts of visual interest softly embedded—a field day of fun for me to explore!

    1. Don't encourage me on the birds, Pattie(ha)....I could easily do only birds. I love it!

  4. I think we should rename it "Mueller Blue." You did it AGAIN, Laurie!
