I will speak of beauty of shapes, and I don’t mean just shapes of living figures or their imitations in painting, but straight lines and curves and the shapes made from them.

Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna chart


Mixing complementary colors: ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

I hate doing color charts. It is difficult for me to stand their mixing paint, without actually creating anything. However, I do see the benefit of doing them, and I  need more practice mixing colors, especially understanding how  to create neutrals  from mixing compliments.

I was inspired after reading Betina Fink’s blog on the subject matter.
