Doodlewash Prompt: Wheat

Did you know that wheat is used in particle board, paper, hair conditioners, adhesives, plastics, cups, golf tees, medical swabs, charcoal and more?

I don’t think it shows in the scan, but it ended up with almost an iridescent look around the wheat stalks, even though I didn’t use any metallics, iridescent, pearlescent or sparkly of any kind. I was surprised.

Did you know that the color of the raisin is determined by the way it is dried? The purply/black raisin is sun-dried, all the rest are dried by other means.

Olives

Doodlewash Prompt: Olives. Did you know that the olive is a fruit, not a vegetable?

I wanted to play with the idea of getting color in black, by using toned paper. I fudged a little by mixing my own blacks with Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna gouache – one mix a little more blue, and one more brown.

I was doing great, but my hand kept wobbling and messing up the line of the dish. I’d adjust, but the color would be a little different and so I had to repaint a larger area each time. Good thing I was using gouache and could easily repaint.

I wasted a little time with Paint 3D – not sure it’s going to work here.

Doodlewash prompt: Pearl. Did you know that pearl oysters are born male and become female at around three years of age. Neat trick.

On Friday, I posted a painting I did on the seagreen-colored paper in one of my Hahnemühle 1584 notebooks. Today’s drawing was done in the 1584 with peach-colored paper.

To learn more about the 1584, you can read my review here at Doodlewash.
