Organic Painting Part 3

This is part 3 in my organic painting series- Using paints made from Poke Berries (magenta) and Turmeric (yellow), which mixed together to make a variety of reds, oranges, and dusty yellows. The brushes are made from human hair tied to a stick with a rubber band and the canvas is paper sewn together and hung with organic cotton on a tree branch.

This is a totally non toxic way to do art, which is much more aligned with today's political and social change then store bought chemical paints which are dangerous to even dispose of. The organic paints are made by boiling the natural substance down for at least 45 minutes with some kosher salt. It needs to be really concentrated with hardly any liquid to get the brightest long lasting hues. Check it out! :)
