Making and Keeping Friends
As one of the most dedicated Jedi Masters of the saga, Obi-Wan Kenobi has helped shape the fate of an entire galaxy. He was more like an older brother than just a mentor to his inherited Padawan learner Anakin Skywalker. However, in Revenge of the Sith, as Palpatine manipulated Skywalker towards the dark side, Kenobi found himself in a lightsaber duel that would alter the friendship between the two Jedi forever.
Over the years, through my work as an artist, and perhaps even more as an author, I have met and established friendships with many artists around the world. Watercolour Impressionists anil Modern Oil Impressionists were two books which widened my circle of artist friends immeasurably. I thought it would be fitting, therefore, to end this book with the work of three friends whose skies I particularly admire. All three regard skies as a very important part of their painting, and I'm sure you'll agree that this is apparent in these last few pages. It's also good to be able to show skies in different media.
For years I've taught watercolour painting using a mere seven colours, regarding them as good friends rather than just acquaintances - you quickly learn how they react together. Having said that, in producing this specialist book on skies, I realized that I needed a few more friends My old faithfuls are raw sienna, cadmium yellow (pale), burnt umber, ultramarine, light red, alizarin crimson and Payne's grey. To these I've added cerulean blue, Prussian blue and burnt sienna. These can be bought in large (21 mm) Winsor & Newton tubes of Cotman colour. I find that these tubes, which are much less expensive than the Artists' Quality ones, are conducive to squeezing out paint with greater abandon - something I'm constantly trying to persuade my students to do. So many people seem to turn into misers over their paint
The drawing here expresses number five, all fingers extended, but this gesture can also signal a command to stop, usually done by the left hand. If the right hand were used in this gesture, it would become a sign of friendship, a salute, an expression of brotherhood, a pledge, or a gesture signifying the presence of a spiritual figure or a figure of majesty.
