This exercise involves mixing colour to match an image, and making a 5 cm area. I chose to cut out some pictures 5cm square. This wasn’t very successful as the scale was too small and I couldn’t easily discern the different shades of colours. In addition, I am still finding the pinks more difficult to mix than other colours. I managed to turn the exercise into a more positive experience by selecting various papers, fabric and threads to match the chosen pictures.
Frustrated by not being able to mix some of the pinks, I experimented with various paints and eventually found that Magenta Red Procion dye mixed with white gouache gave me the desired shades.
