Never be afraid to paint outside the lines

What’s going on with the blog?

I guess I’ve been pretty quiet lately. I’m working on competition entries for the summer convention season, and this year I’m going to wait to post them until after the conventions, in order to keep the element of surprise.

In addition to painting, I’ve been working on a couple of longer articles for the blog. One is a two-part article on color theory, which will talk a bit about the science of color, as that’s an element missing from a lot of the color theory articles you see. I’m a big science nerd, so I loved researching it. The text is mostly finished, but I’m also creating some visualizations for it, and the code for generating those is only about half done. So that will take a bit longer.

The other article is on painting tricky colors: white, black, and red. I’ve just started that one, but I want to finish it by KublaCon since I will be teaching a class based on it.

On that note, I will be teaching classes, both at KublaCon and at Gen Con. More on that shortly. I’m going to be teaching my two-brush blending class again, which I’ve now taught several times. It’s great fun to teach and my students seem to get a lot out of it. I’ll also be teaching a class on painting tricky colors, to go with the article.

One last note—I finally got a Putty & Paint account. Check it out at
