Today I sorted out the pattern for my fingerprint DNA piece. It absolutely did my head in at a point but I get an odd satisfaction from working out detailed patterns and rhythms.
I bought some new acrylic paints today. CMY (cyan, magenta, yellow) primary colours. Did you know that red isn't a primary colour!? Yeah, I MIXED red. From magenta and yellow. Crazy.

The pattern for my DNA design:
The pattern done full size in bingo dabbers as a test.

A digital painting I did on Brushes this morning of one of the guitars in the living room. I attempted to match the colours in front of me exactly. It's a good exercise that really makes you think about what you're seeing and how you interpret it with your brain.
