be the calm materials

I love this page. I know I say that about a lot of the stuff I make but I really mean it with each and every one. I decided to do a colorful background but didn’t add the doodles. I felt this page, with its myriad of colour should exist on its own. 

Materials Used:

  • Golden gesso
  • Golden acrylic paints – carbon black, cadmium yellow, light green, manganese blue
  • Golden fluid acrylic – teal
  • Pebeo vivid pink

And that’s it. A very limited pallette today but the sheer intensity of the colours used means it really stands out.  


All materials for this page were from The Paint Spot. 

And since I missed yesterday’s material list, I’ll include it in today’s post.
