Live Earth Painting at Tease
Painting Live at “Tease”, a swanky cocktail lounge in Ashland, was alot of fun last month. It was also challenging trying to stay in “the zone” space with everyone I knew in Ashland stopping by to chat (which was also wonderful by the way). I couldn’t bring my big glass palette and tons of jars of pigment so I brought tubes of earth paint from my favorite paint co., M. Graham. They’re local and environmental and use walnut oil in their oil paints. If you pick out earth colors- yellow ochre, burnt sienna, raw umber, etc. and make sure it has the word “natural” on the back of the tube, then it’s a natural earth paint. If it says “mars” or doesn’t say “natural” then it’s synthetic.
