INTRODUCING TRUPTI KARJINNI OF @WHATACOLOR_GAL
Trupti is a watercolor artist, designer and teacher based in Belgaum, India. She is heavily inspired by nature’s serenity and wants her audience to experience the same calmness when they view her artwork, amidst the chaos of the mind and the world.
TAKE A LOOK AT TRUPTI'S ART PROCESS
Trupti started painting every day from May, 2017 and shared her work on Instagram. By painting and sharing everyday it made her a better artist much more quickly and propelled her on the journey to be a full-time artist. Trupti strives to capture the light and tranquility in her art. It is the thrill of capturing that fleeting magic on paper and immortalizing it with the unpredictable magic of watercolours that keeps her up late into the night, creating. There is a degree of uncontrollability in watercolours and Trupti likes not being in complete control of the medium all the time. You only need to prod the pigments in the water and they make their own magic. It is oddly freeing in a way.
A FEW FUN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT TRUPTI KARJINNI
Trupti is a HUGE Calvin and Hobbes fan! She has the entire boxed set of all the comics.
She can cook a mean Assamese chicken curry.
Pai is a small village in the Northern mountains of Thailand and it's Trupti's favorite place in the world.
Trupti enjoys a lot of different cuisines but Thai and South Indian are her favorite.
Tea is Trupti's drink of choice. She rarely drinks coffee!
YOUR TURN: FIVE MINUTES A DAY
Trupti gives us the best advice and has shared the reason for her success. to paint everyday – even if for 5 minutes, just put paint on paper. This ritual is extremely powerful, it sped up my learning in a way I didn’t think was possible.
In the simplest of all projects, your ability will grow if you just paint or draw for at least five minutes a day. In no time you will see results from a daily practice. This is for you, you don't have to be perfect, you don't have to share your work, you don't have to make a masterpiece. You just need to make your mark daily. Every five minutes will add up!

We all long for lazy days at the beach. Now you can escape with a little memory or wish of beautiful coastal days in this fun mini course created by Kellee Wynne Studios.
Seascape Escape is an an easy step by step class to teach you how to paint abstracted cloudy seascapes in a process method developed hand-in-hand with the True Colors program. This is an excellent place to begin if you're new to acrylic painting and want to learn more about your materials and how to begin and end simple landscape paintings. If you're a seasoned artist, there is always something new to discover with ideas and techniques you might not have experienced yet.
We start with the modern primary colors: cyan, yellow and magenta and learn how to mix up a rainbow. The color wheel may seem like an elementary project, but it is a great eye opener to how colors work together. In addition to a step-by-step downloadable PDF there is a complete tutorial on painting the mini seascape in a series. These concepts will be reinforced with additional painting videos of the mini seascapes in action. And because there are always extras with Kellee Wynne Studios, a complete video tutorial of painting the seascape on a larger canvas is being added as a bonus.
Get started today with instant access on an easy to use platform. Once you've registered, this video series is yours to watch, re-watch and enjoy for as long as you'd like.

Taylor Lee is a color-obsessed artist with a passion for communicating through acrylic paintings. She is from a small, rural town in North Carolina. She is most recognized for her bold use of concentrated color that often incorporates free-spirited marks that create dichotomies between the wild and thoughtful, the bold and vulnerable. Taylor is also vocal about her experience with mental illness. She finds ways to bring the reality of a stigmatized mental illness into a celebratory light, creating paintings that are buzzing with energy, movement, and loud colors.

It's another amazing palette with new ideas to explore. With the integration of Color Crush Creative and the True Colors monthly membership course, we now have a new system in place to direct our focus.

Hope you are ready for an abundance of color! Having a fresh start every other week with new colors and inspiration is a great way to stay motivated and active in your creative pursuits. I asked on social media what was your biggest challenge as an artist - and most of you either said TIME or FINDING YOUR STYLE.... I'm ready to work on these ideas together. Look for new blog posts, tips on the social media feeds and in the True Colors online course where we have been building a fantastic group of supportive friends. We can't create in a bubble and we certainly can't let fear hold us back from doing the thing we are so passionate about. So in the next month expect to have a good heart to heart!
In the meantime, I think that Spring Fling is going to be a hit and I hope to see you creating and sharing a lot of artwork on Instagram because I want to feature you! Please take clear bright photos and use the hashtag #cccpalette42 so I can find you and share your work on @colorcrushcreative
Learning to see and mix and create beautifully with color is a skill that takes time and practice. You can mix these 12 colors with only 3 tubes of paint plus white. It's all part of the color confidence system I have been developing over the last year with Color Crush Creative and the new online program TRUE COLORS.
Using a modern color wheel consisting of Cyan, Yellow and Magenta have revolutionized how I see color. You really can mix the most amazing, vibrant colors with very few tubes of paint!
Imagine a whole weekend to escape to Paris right from the comfort of Queen’s Ink in Savage, Maryland! Learn the foundations of mixed media in a playful, relaxed setting. Spend three days learning and painting with Kellee Wynne Conrad. We will create several projects, including postcard art, a mini envelope art journal, architecturally inspired mixed media and even a painting of the Eiffel Tower.
Finally a new palette! And we're changing the format just a bit with more color and new monthly themes. The next two weeks we will be focusing on the bright and playful palette of Kaleidoscope. If you're paying attention to your color theory, you might notice that this is a complementary palette, so easy to use with the potential of creating an eye popping painting. Don't forget to add white to bring balance to your artwork and share using the hashtag #cccpalette41.
