Colour mixing

The sun filtering through the window this afternoon was so lovely that I couldn't resist setting up to paint nearby. I've always found colour mixing difficult, but I've gotten better at it with practice. I usually work back from available yarn types and colours to make a palette. I don't have the patience for dyeing yarn. So though this was to be playing with geometric pattern, I ended up with something much more organic. I can't really use these for my weaving work. Once they are dry, I'll probably add some fine line work. But right now, I can't get enough of acid green, bright orange, pastel shades and a grey or two.
