Trying a Little Color

I guess most of these posts will be doubles. Again, I have my homework, as well as what I did in class tonight. I am kind of excited because I tried color for the first time!

My homework was still in grey tones, and my professor said she was drawn to it which made me happy! Here it is:

And then here is what I did in class, which was really challenging and, at times, frustrating. But the professor sat down with me for a while and explained some things so I started getting into it by the end. I still have a lot to learn about mixing colors, but her advice was to just jump in and see what happens, and eventually you start to just know what you need to make a particular shade. The only down side is, oil paint is so expensive!!! So, it’s hard to just play with lots of it and waste any… but,that’s the way it goes.
