There is always much that goes on at the holidays time. Planning dinner with family always takes precedence. Relaxing and doing the fun creative things is also always on ones mind. Recently I completed my first semi precious watercolor chart shown with campeche wood mixed to show all its variance of mixed colors. Wherein one begins to learn new ideas in color mixing concepts. Semi precious greens mixing into steel blues and lavenders, earth orange reds mixing into deeper tonal reds and earth browns and purples. They are a new set of visual understandings. For the holidays something new and fun to explore, plant dyes mixing with semi precious pigments.
