Working with our Value/Color System.

Sometimes it's overwhelming to just figure out what to paint.  But I know how much I want to paint and feel that brush against the canvas and love just painting relationships of color and value.  So just for the joy of painting I will use my Value/Color forms from our system and start painting.  I don't worry about   "will it sell",  "will a gallery like it", "would so and so paint this"; all those thoughts that can sometimes stop me.  And when I don't want the stress of those thoughts and just want to exercise my skills I paint from these forms and the 16 different drop cloths.  And many of the forms are color specific to my palette.  The arrangements can be limitless.  Have had so much fun! 


  1. This is such a good exercise Peggy and looks like fun too. It would be a great way to get my juices flowing before starting or working on a "real" piece. Like a warm up?
    Love your work always, but now I love your blog too!

  2. Thanks! I have a lot of fun and they keep my skills sharp. And I get o experiment with no pressure or expectations. They are just for me.

  3. I am looking forward to this being offered! :-) Do you have an idea of when that might be?
