Time to Paint!

In drawing class, we began to work with acrylic Liquitex paint. We had to choose a Japanese print and try to create the exact colors in the picture. I chose the work by Harunobu, Girl on Night Pilgramage from the book Master of the Japanese Print.
This acrylic paint drys extremely fast so you have to work quickly. I know I didn't reach the exact color but I am still experimenting! Once we made the closest color to the original, we had to make a scale with the same proportions that the print has. Then make a proportional abstract painting.
Mixing the colors was very relaxing! I am excited to paint again in drawing class!
