There are colours to wear and colours for the home and colours to just admire. I don’t wear yellow and I don’t decorate my home with yellow, but I love yellow in nature, especially all the autumn shades.
I played around with lines and brushes, brush strokes, splotches and of course colour.
The reds in nature are now at their peak and are quickly fading away as the leaves start to fall. As much as the reds and nature are/were inspiring, I couldn’t succeed in really “getting into it”. the reds tricked me, my sketching was off and my wist was stiff as Sylvester Stallone’s biceps….fit for many other things, but not for drawing. It is nonetheless part of my series for November colours..so here are they…the reds of November.
The palette for a mix of all the reds:
- Golden pink
- Potter’s pink
- Cadmuim red
- Rose madder
- Venetian red
- Burnt sienna
- Alizaron crimson
- Ultramarine violet
* On Myfrenchkitchen, I have posted a recipe and photos..all in the spirit of November reds..
