|A finger works pretty well to
interpret Macke's painting technique
My art club kids had their first crack at painting the mural last week. Although I had worked out recipes for the more prominant colors in our reproduction poster, as the kids wielded their palette knives and paint tubes, I saw that all my recipe colors appeared slightly off the mark. I forgot to factor in the yellowish cast of the school's hallway lighting compared to the north light at home by which I made my color swatches! Oh my...live and learn I guess. We adjusted for the warmer tones, and everything looks fine now. Today we should have had our second session, but how can one not appreciate another snow day ?
