Favorite Color Mixing Quotes

"It's almost officially changed!"

"I am going to do the most daring thing ever and mix this...."

"I made light pink, dark pink and middle size pink."

"Yellow, orange and peach - I call it yorch!"

About using oil pastels:
"I rub the side and the color falls off!"

Color Wheel Inspiration

A color wheel is one of many visual references posted in the studio. This young artist was exploring collage and oil pastels when the color wheel caught her eye and she decided to make one of her own.
She asked for a circle and began with one traced in pencil on a small square of paper.
She was determined in her work, making her way around the edge of the circle arranging sections of color.

She used her fingers to go back and blend some of the colors.
The completed color wheel - in recreating it, this young artist has made it her own while also reflecting on an important artists' tool.
