Class, Day 2
It is very helpful painting in front of someone who knows their stuff, and does not mince words. Class 2 I learned that I do not even know how to buy paint properly. I am serious. For the last 3 years I have been using a red that is not true red (necessary for proper mixing) but rather an orange red that is almost glowing, it is so bright. Turns out I need Cadmium, not just the red that stands out to me in the store as the red that most closely resembles my idea of red. She also said that the blue that I bought is so intense that it is dangerous. Dangerous!
