In an effort to step outside of my creative comfort zone (i.e. blindingly bright colors), I'm painting something that is mostly pastel colors. So far, I've made myself add a little white to every color added to lighten it up a bit. I'm not gonna lie- it's a bit like a wrestling match. It would feel much better if I put away the white paint, but I'm trying to do something "different"... please check back next Friday to see (hopefully) the finished product & to find out if I continue to have some self-control with the bright colors.
Judging by my lack of self-control in other areas of my life (chocolate) I wouldn't bet on it.
