your description in post 3 strikes a chord with me , that is ,
mixing sticks either on or alongside the working surface
in order to get ' the right ' colour ,
and adapting with the sticks that i have .
with a thousand sticks , there is the possibility of a million two-layer blends !
( i figured that on paper , and pencil
value and colour temperature really do help to hold together the visual result
while exploring the nuances , the ' harmonics ' .
looking forward to your next post
