If you're confused by the title, it's a mix of Arpakasso and Bow. Bow because of course I make bows, and Arpakasso because I also made an alpaca. It's under the jump...so you should click "read more."

Painting I and Watercolor I

Painting! Yeah! Sorry for another non-craft post. The next one for sure will have some crochet stuff in it. Especially since I just made something last night. Anyway...
Been working on still life stuff for my Painting I class. The one above is actually my third painting, but it looks the best so I made it the first picture. It's a complementary color painting, so I was only allowed to use the mixtures of two colors. I picked yellow [cad yellow medium] and purple [prism violet] because I didn't want to have to deal with blue and mixing up an orange. Mixed 7 steps of yellow to violet, and didn't use the pure color of either. They're both slightly dulled with a bit of the other color mixed in.
