Starting a painting with a lot of drama. 
First drama- how to mix turquoise without Cobalt teal, Cerulean Blue or Turquoise tube paints.  See  http://artwithaloha.wordpress.com

 :thankyou: SUSAN, PATRICIA, MARYANNE, & LINLEY FOR YOUR COMMENTS!


The rough looks a lot better than the work I did today with the stormy skies and waves!  Much tougher than I thought, but I’ll keep ‘practicing’ on the old recycled canvas! ~Liz

 :) HI TERESA, VAL, SHARON!  If you start on a rough seas painting, the white water is going to drive you crazy- just letting you know!


ROBYNANN, color charts are good for ‘playing’ with paint and giving you ideas for how to begin choosing what colors you may need when you start a painting. What has happened to my painting is that ultramarine blue is not near as dark as Prussian blue which has a green bias and works out well for dark places.  So I am now doing the dark accents with Prussian blue.


UMB and Burnt umber do well for dark places and grays in the sky.  I don’t know how others paint, but I may start with 3 mixes of a color though it doesn’t matter much what happens later because I mix as I go and rarely stick to premixed paint piles.  How do you paint your lovely work? ~Liz

 :think: I suspect somewhat haphazardly!  :whistle:

I know I really should plan things out more, just seems the more I lay out a plan the further I get from it as it progresses.  :crazy2:

Intriguing.  I'm reminded stormy seas can come from thousands of miles away and present themselves under moderate skies.
