· Golden Acrylics have developed a free, fun, online tool to help artists with colour mixing.
· Expand your palette through colour exploration and teach yourself about colour mixing without wasting paint.
· With the Virtual Colour Mixer you can select up to three Golden Acrylic colours and mix them with sliders to adjust the proportion of each while watching your new colour change! A recipe for your new colour appears that you can save, print or email. You can also upload a photo to match colours or create paint colours that match web colours. The program accounts for the physical characteristics within the Golden Acrylics ranges by choosing Fluid, Open or Heavy Body.
Why not combine the two…
Please join us at this art filled afternoon.

If you know of anyone who is interested in Art Journals, perhaps you’d be kind enough to mention this.
There can be a lot of mystery when you go to purchase paints, especially if it’s your first time buying a particular medium.
Just to start with, when you look at the wall of paint at your local art supply shop you’ll see many different brands. Then within each brand you’ll find different series numbers, and sometimes even different series numbers within what looks to be the same colour.
So what do these paint series numbers mean?
The short and simple answer is that the lower the series number (”Series 1″ for example) the cheaper the paint will be. As the number goes higher, so will the price.
A young mans dream to be an artist was crushed when his application to enter the fine arts academy was rejected.
His crushed dream… Tragic nightmare for the world… who painted these pictures, who’s eyes are we looking through when we look at them?
There are some interesting books in the studio just now. In fact they have been there for ages i just never noticed.
Paintings that Every Child Should Know
This one is interesting not for what is in it but for what isn”t. There is not a Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, or Warhol to be seen. probably because it was published in 1927.
Monet, in 1927 had been dead for a year.
Warhol was still a twinkle in his father’s eye.
Here we are on this lovely Saturday morning, with little students busily creating Dali like “dream paintings” with lovely Miss Lala (too cool, dreams are way hard to create but they’re ON it & doing great)… but just TO add to our lovely morning, Lala kicked off by showing us THIS… SO we’re sharing: For anyone who might feel a spot of artistic energy coming on ….. ‘BE’ Jackson Pollock AND have a bash @ this!
(Tips: click your mouse to change colours & once you’ve completed your masterpiece, click CTRL/print Screen button, paste into a word document, crop and BINGO… your very OWN Pollock creation!)
Just a reminder to all budding BANGKOK artists out there of what’s been happening on the International Art Scene this week … so DO keep creating ART as ART, as well as being the best thing you’ll EVER do, can also = MONEY.
LOTS of money!!
So STICK with the programme, keep your prices high, take pride in what you produce & keep going because it will ALL be WORTH it in the end
