Today I caught a happy moment of baby playing with my Indonesia helper Ida. Ida was trying to wrap her batik scarf she inherited from her grandmother on my baby's head. They were really happy doing this.
The batik scarf is really beautiful. It is the inspiration of today's piece. I painted the tree in Acrylic and then digitally tweak it.
I always find difficult to make nice colors in my paintings. I just read a book about using colors for artist. One point is very useful to me. It tells me to gather color references. I usually cut out from magazine to gather nice looking colors and their combination. I think it is very useful to me.
Today's color reference is depicted in here that I gathered from a picture in a magazine.
It would be nice to hear others on how you manage your colors.
