Charts and Experiments

An important source for my art is a binder I put together. It holds most of the charts and experiments I do with my paints – watercolour, oil, and acrylic. I was looking at the binder last night and realized that I have been doing these charts and experiments for over 10 years. I do a lot of charting this helps me know how my paints react and how various colours mix together.

When I see an interesting painting technique, I try it out and keep my experiments with my charts. Some of my experiments have made it into paintings.

Not all my charts/experiments have made it to the binder, only the ones that fit in those 8 ½ x 11 plastic sheet protectors are in the binder. Some are too big. I’ll post them later.

Some of my charts are below.

Here are some of the experiments and paintings I have created.
