Day 167- Still life on yellow table-

Day 167- Still life on yellow table
 5,5 x 7,5 inches, mixed media on vintage paper

I am experimenting with mixing my acrylics, gouache and acrylic inks with
white house paint and pink block printing ink. I love the pink hue of the block printing ink but for some 
mysterious reason it does not register with my scanner. What's that about, does anyone know?
I tried to adjust the colors on my screen but it's still too nasty in relation to the real thing. Or at least
I HOPE the real thing is kind of delicious....haha! Anyway, I think the block printing ink will go back to the cupboard, and maybe I will buy some pink house paint instead. The house paint is nice and creamy and kind of thick, it dries really fast which is not too cool but I can work around that.

Charming, lively painting.
I'm fascinated you are mixing the inks which are so flat with the acrylic paint. I think certain pastel hues are difficult for the scanner to pick up but from my computer the pinks do show and are lovely.

Thank you Julie,
I guess I will have to adjust;-)

Experimenting is one of the joys of being a painter. May you find the perfect pink, Annamaria! xo Carole
