You may be getting really tired of hearing me babble on about my notecards…good news! I’ve run out of notecards so I switched to POSTCARDS! As I mentioned yesterday I had forgotten to get photos of two of my notecards so I shot a photo of notecard 6. With this one I started trying straight bands of color and I chose purples and grays for this painting.

I wasn’t kidding when I said I started doing postcards. I found an old pad of Cotman postcards that I took to Mexico on a vacation several years ago. The paper is 4″ X 6″ (slightly smaller than the notecards) and I am taping off a 1/4″ border. The colors were applied in organic shapes and are pale colors such as flesh, spring green and pale peach…I wanted a soft gentle look. The postcards are smoother than the Whatman notecards which have a rough surface.
