This image was just the result of playing around. I’m going to concentrate for a while on painting with casein and in this case I was just trying to explore mixing darks with a palette of some green, ultramarine blue, yellow, cobalt blue and cerulean blue. I would make a mix of some combination trying to make it as rich a dark as possible then I made swatches of the various mixtures on paper. When I looked, one of these swatches looked a bit like a person so I then played with that idea and turned each of them into a person. The purer, brighter colours that I painted between these darks just started to sing when surrounded by the neutrals. It was a lot of fun and the first time I’ve done anything solely with casein. I usually use it as an addiction to my acrylic paintings. The title refers to a much earlier post with a painting called The Blob People.
