Today while painting I was listening to a nice podcast about using video platforms to market you art & get new people to see you. It was an interview with Amy Tan of the brand Amy Tangerine.
I can definitely recommend it. But I listen to loads of great podcasts and they are always featured in the little box in my blog posts under the category . I usually link the website to the particular episode I listened to as long as it’s available to stream online.
I ordered a whole lot of art supplies today, I hope they will hurry up with the delivery because after this painting I only have 2 canvases left. I might need to start doing some water colors in the mean time next week. But I’m so looking forward to my new colors. One of them is a fluorescent pink, I can’t wait to use this one, I wanted to paint with it since forever.
My inspiration for today’s painting was a pond with water lilies and a reflective water surface. I tried to abstract it to my liking with a nice color gradient that reminded my of reflected light on the water in a city or during a sunset. It was really hard to photograph this one to show the real colors, I feel like my camera can’t really capture that kind of magenta.
That magenta & pink glow my Cadmium Red hue gets when painting transparently and under a green.
Magenta & green contrast.
