Colours for skin tones vary immensely between the home value of a person’s skin as there are areas of high light and shade and subtle changes in colour around various parts of the body. When painting skin it’s very common to find that you use a lot of different colours.
As these are perennial questions we thought we’d start off a discussion because there are many different ways to produce skin colours and one person’s recipe is different from the next.
During the year Chroma has supported the National Art School in Darlinghurst, Sydney, in various ways. As it has done for many years, Chroma joined other businesses and patrons supporting the art world, by offering a painting prize to a graduate at the end of year Degree Show.
Hanna Paine won the Chroma Paints Award with a triptych, one of her works exploring the mystery of experience from a child’s perspective.
Earlier this year Chroma ran an art competition in conjunction with The Art Scene. Competition entrants had to use Atelier Interactive, Jo Sonja’s, Archival Oils or A2 brands of Chroma paint in their works. The competition ran throughout the year and closed on 30th November 2009.
Chroma is considering changes to the color range of Atelier Interactive and Archival Oils. For some colors, the pigments are no longer available. We also have received a number of requests for additions to the line, and in order to accommodate these requests, some less popular colors would be discontinued.
The Paint Talk Gallery topic has been extremely popular and I would like to thank everyone who has shared their work with us. The topic has grown so large that I have decide to start a fresh one for 2009, if you have not had a look a last years you can find it by clicking on the following link Paint Talk Gallery 2008
The old gallery topic is closed for comments, please add your new images and comments to the 2009 Paint Talk Gallery.
Like most artists in this computer age, I get lots of emails every day. In addition to questions about paint and requests for events, I receive emails from artists that include images of recent works created with our products. Those are my favorite emails, as I always am so impressed with the talent and creativity of people who use our paints.
A question from one of our teachers prompts me to ask for feedback re overpainting oils with acrylics. Margaret, from Queensland, tells me she was always taught that you can't successfully paint acrylics over oils but she doesn't know the science behind it. She was challenged by someone who maintained it was possible at one of her demonstrations recently and was at a loss to explain her belief.
Yeppoon is situated on the Tropic of Capricorn coast, east of Rockhampton, Queensland.
We had 36 dedicated artists who come here for 10 days every year to hone their painting skills. This year we had 2 tutors. Bela Ivanyi (Sydney) has been the regular tutor here for many years. He uses mainly Absolute Matte himself and some Atelier Interactive. Our guest tutor this year was Daniel Pata who teaches oils and acrylics at the National Art School, Sydney. There were more women than men, more older than younger age group, making it a typical art group but all very focused.
