There is an interesting/colorful video clip available on the Gamblin Artist Color Oil Paints site by Robert Gamblin…
Navigating Color Space- Multidimensional Approach to Color Mixing.
“ Navigating Color Space is a DVD program I created on color mixing. By using 3D computer animation, I can best show painters how to access the universe of color, I call Color Space. The animated sequences demonstrate how to define a color by its attributes: value, hue and intensity (chroma). During the program, I demonstrate a few of the secrets of the Old Masters so you, too, will know how to mix green and red into blue.”
The story of how the paints are made can be found here . I wonder if any polymer clay artists are using Gamblin oil paints in their creations?
I was delighted to stumble upon this fractal image of broccoli today = a whole new way to think about this wonderful vegetable … you can read more about how this image was created here.
I wonder if any polymer clay artists have fractalized their polymer polymer clay pieces? To see more yellow green color combinations visit Color Combos on the web.

The daffodils are sprouting, the light is increasing (even more after I re-set my clock tonight to daylight savings time), there are “new” birds singing…spring is on it’s way! Soon local asparagus will begin showing up in the markets. I spent part of the afternoon mixing springlike colors= more white, more fluorescent to brighten the colors.
You can download the Pantone Spring color forecast here… This color from the spring 2009 selections is called dark citron #16-0435 (I bet this is a color that Kim Cavender would like) =the starting pint is – 16 parts cadmium yellow, 8 parts fluorescent yellow, 6 parts ultramarine blue and 1 part fuchsia- after you have mixed this you can use it as is, or add 1/8 black to get a darkered valued version or 1/4 white to get a lighter valued version.
