Cheerio Day One

First day and what fun we’ve had.  Blind contour writing and color mixing with lots of exercises involving sumi ink, graphite pencils and watercolor.  This photo was taken at the end of the day and represents blind writing of an early Greek alphabet and colors developed from a simple palette of Daniel Smith watercolors – quinacrodone gold, quinacrodone coral and phalo blue (RS).  Finding all those mysterious browns and grays was both challenging and wondrous.
