I adore colour, the more there is the happier I am. But I have learnt to restrain my colour palette and am probably a better artist for it.
Using colour more effectively was another skill I learnt at Artescape. We had to select two colours and white and blend them to create new colours and shades. Then use these two colours to create a painting. This was fantastic for me because now I am being more selective with the colours I use.
Mind you I still like to add a little extra to my paintings but now I think it is more successful.
