Sunflower Garden 24 x 36 Inch Oil Painting

This is a 24 x 36 Inch Sunflower Oil Painting done in CYM no K (Cyan (Phthalo Blue), Cad Yellow Light, Primary Magenta and no Black) plus White.  I started experimenting with this palette a few months ago and have been slowly learning its oddities.  I really like the warm yellows, rusty oranges, brilliant reds, turquoise blues, vibrant purples…and I am even starting to get the hang of greens.

Red Iris 14 x 18 Inch Oil Painting Palette Knife

I love the reds in this Iris painting.  I think the blues are pretty kickin’ as well…and the greens!  I also love the texture.  I think I am just overall pleased with this painting.  Maybe I am starting to get the hang of my experimental color palette.  This one is a CMY plus white.

Pastels on Black Pastel Paper By Mrs. Breeden’s 3rd Grade Class

Today the kids got to experiment with pastels on black pastel paper.  I believe one of the phrases used to describe the experience was OFF THE HOOK!  Others included fun and epic.  We drew two pictures and the kids chose one to hang in class and one to take home.  These are the drawings they chose to hang on the class “art clothesline”.  Please forgive the clothespins in the photos.  Our subjects today were cityscapes and mountains because…Albuquerque.  I know I had an “epic, off the hook” time.  I smiled when a few of the kids asked where they could buy their own pastels.  One even asked what kind of paper she could use at home if she didn’t have the good paper.  Awesome!  Hat tip to Mr P at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nMiyNwQJ13w!
