Hi Everyone,
My name is Cathy and I am Annie's daughter.

This is my contribution for Artist Day.  It is a mixed media with acrylic paint background and colored resine on top.

Thank you for looking at my paintings and for reading my posts, Cathy

Nice work, Cathy.

Happy International Artists Day to you, too!

I will post something later in the day after I teach my senior citizen class.

Happy International Artist Day 2017 everyone.  Can't post anything as I was working on flash cards for my 3 year old granddaughter who just loves to paint and be busy when she comes to me a couple of times a week. I have to make sure that I am one step ahead of her by having everything prepared for her next visit as she works at such a fast pace and finishes the tasks I set out for her, then she asks "what can we can do next".  :sweat:

 :doh: Late again!  :2funny:

Hello Cathy  :wave: nice to meet you! That is a very cool piece you have created. I like the effect of the resin on the paint. I hope we'll be seeing much more of your art work!   :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

 :think: What was I up to 2 days ago...?   :heeha: That's it! I had my pastels out for a little bit, then just sketching some 'stuff' and hoping the rain would stop for a bit..... no luck there.  :P     Maybe it will be better today!  :pray:
Cheers, Val

Oh! Cathy I am remiss in not welcoming you to our PB.  Please excuse me and welcome to our site.  I am so happy to see some of your work as your Mom has mentioned you several times in her posts.  Looking forward to seeing much more of your work.

Half a dozen small projects yesterday, but the only one finished is the colour test chart using my new tube of Daniel Smith Permanent Brown. At first I was not impressed.... just another red-brown I thought, and then I looked again. And again. Just look at how vibrant the mixes are. I'm really looking forward to using it in a painting!

Nice chart, Linley.  I love my Daniel Smith WC paints.  And my Holbin Gouache, and my Golden watercolor, and my daVinci WC.

But, my favorite now is the PENNY (yes, 1 cent piece) for drawing.

Hi, Patricia.... maybe I should apply to be an ambassador for Daniel Smith in Oz? :2funny: The paints are expensive but also highly pigmented so they last a long time. Many of them granulate beautifully, and the names they give the colours are really seductive like: Lunar Blue, Shadow violet, Cascade green, Wisteria and Lavender. It's so easy to order more colours than you really need. You can often get free dot sample cards of the colour palette used by various artists. And there is a large dot card of 66 colours you can order from some suppliers for a small fee. I know we should be able to mix most colours from a basic red, blue yellow palette, but where is the fun in that? ;)

Linley, thanks for the information on the Daniel Smith paints and yes, you should be an ambassador for them in Oz.  I use predominantly Winsor Newton but when I see such vibrant colours, it makes me want to splash out and add them to my collection.  I agree that mixing your own colours isn't much fun when you can have them all at once, mixed and ready to use.   :2funny:
