Misty Blues and Cool Turquoise Abstract Original Painting

I have been playing around with my new mockup tool from creative market. It’s tons of fun. I did find it had a learning curve but that is ok…I am a slow learner and can take it all in! Ha!

Misty Blues and Cool Turquoise Abstract Original Painting by Laura K. Aiken

It’s hard for me as an artist to find a way to present their work in a natural setting with correct lighting. I feel like now I have found the closet that I will get by creating with the Mockup Creator. What really got my attention was the gray cat. If you know me you know my fur-baby is gray just like this one. Hey…I can even have blonde hair. I think it really shows off Mystic Blue and Cool Teal Abstract painting too. This makes a beautiful print. Original has been sold. T
Thanks for coming by today.
Laura.

How to Plan a Color Scheme

I have students all the time ask me how do I come up with my color schemes.  What colors go with other colors .  For me it is as basic as looking at fabric, wallpaper, or magazines etc.  Sometimes just looking at a color wheel doesn’t quite cut it.  Take a look below at some of the examples I pulled together.  If you notice, in most articles, they will have listed a color pallet and then styled accessories and fabrics in the other pictures like below. In other photo, are colors like the color pallet above.  All of these examples are from the  Grandinroad August 2014 catalogue.  Great magazine I might add.

New Look for Website

snap
Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I hope you can tell I am in the mist of creating a new website.  I will not go into the gory details but….I will tell you, this might not have been the brightest idea I have had.  I still have a long way to go in the technical end and hope to have it figured out soon.  Just so you will know,  I have been blogging since 2009.  I have another blog that I had tried to import here but was not successful, and lost the formatting on it in the process.  I would love for you to check it out, though please keep in mind the quirky look was not intentional.  Please bear with me as I continue with my transition and feel free to email me with any questions.  Thank you for your patience!  Oh and I am in the process of adding new work to my Etsy shop, this will be a slow process, but I do have merchandise in my studio and I am taking custom orders.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Laura.
