It is week one of my painting course and I have been researching colour and the origin of pigments on the internet, as well as doing some practical work with the colour wheel.
What have I learned so far?
Mars Black is a hip hop artist from Nebraska (!)

Sitting in front of the computer for hours means Yoga is delicious afterwards.
Simply painting stripes of colour on oil sketch paper makes me happy.
And for those of you with an eagle eye - spot the pussy-cat paint paw print (top centre) in the photo above.
