Well the day is done and I completed my last”Quiller” triad exercise. ( I actually did two paintings just to experiment!) The exercise assigned a painting using the triad Thalo Green, Winsor Violet and Vermilion to paint an abstract using rectangles, triangles and curvilinear forms. We were to totally emphasize the values and color. I chose a cool feeling with Green dominant, Violet intermediate and Vermilion subordinate. I need to work more with vermilion. It is a new color for me and I am not confident using it yet. Well that’s the tell, now for the show.
The next set of exercises are the last and they seem to be at a “higher” working level. We will see. I attend the docent book club at the IMA (Indianapolis Museum of Art) tomorrow. Our book this month is The Monument Men. Great book about the US and British soldiers that saved the art pillaged by the Nazis. This book was a major resource for the PBS documentary The Rape of Europa. I also have a continuing education class in the PM on linking art and music in the IMA collections. My day will be art-filled…I hope I have time to paint!
