I asked, you responded.
I asked what color to mix for December and you responded "blues and greens". I immediately thought, "Oh, in search of the perfect teal.." Now, I was fully aware that the search would lead me down a rabbit hole, filled with beautiful blues, greens, turquoise, even mints. What I didn't realize was how far I was willing to go down that rabbit hole. Let me tell you, I RAN gleefully into several days AND nights of color and technique experimentation that hopefully I can present in a semi coherent set of color mixes and one insane Creative Map.[caption id="attachment_14940" align="alignleft" width="300"] Premo! Green and Premo! Accents Peacock yield all great colors.[/caption]
So here we go.. .Our color feature this month is Premo! Green (all Premo! mixes this month), with special guest appearances of Turquoise all through the month. So I love every single color on this Green/Peacock mix spectrum, especially the 4P/1Gr mix on the end (I know I left off the "r" - to excited to post this to redo). I also did a textured piece of the color and I love the way the Peacock in the mix causes those blue/green color shifts that is part of it's magic.
Then I thought, "I wonder what Peacock mixed with Turquoise would look like?" The answer is "Pretty boring." Take a look: There is barely any color change. That's when I really started poking around in the Rabbit Hole and found this path - Green, Peacock and Turquoise - all together..You really need to enlarge this photo and look at what is happening in the textured pieces. There is some glowing happening there, especially in the middle mix. I can't even begin to pick a favorite one, can you?
