Art therapy

I enjoyed art class last night. The teacher talked about colour, and got us to make some colour wheels with twelve segments, using the three primary colours. It may be basic stuff but I’d never done one before.

I was supposed to learn about tone, saturation and intensity, but all I learned was that my ultramarine pastel comes out blotchy. I really don’t care that I didn’t grasp the fundamental learning points. It was very therapeutic sitting quietly in a corner colouring, with my brand new box of (water-soluble) Neocolor pastels.
