The Art Lab

Day 5 – Blue Day!!!

I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa

Name that tune 😂 so catchy. I apologize if it gets stuck in your head all day.

Supplies for the day are the usual pencils, pens, and blue art supplies!

Blue is my favorite color. Choosing one out of the bunch is hard. But I lean toward either midnight blue or teal. There are a ton of different varieties of blue. Some of these you may wonder why I included in this bunch instead of Green. When I did my test swatches, I found that they were closer to blue than green.

The tip for the day is to try different tints and shades of the blue. Watercolor is a great supply for doing this because you can get light and dark values fairly quick. If you use watercolors, remember to use paper at least 100lbs/270gsm or more.

“Whenever I gaze up at the moon, I feel like I’m on a time machine. I am back to that precious pinpoint of time, standing on the foreboding – yet beautiful – Sea of Tranquility. I could see our shining blue planet Earth poised in the darkness of space.” -Buzz Aldrin

Have a great day!!!
