I did a brief video explaining why we make color charts for color mixing. After, I was inspired to journal and talk about the rainbow colored Mantis Shrimp. The materials I used were gesso, Golden Absorbent Ground, Windsor & Newton Professional Water Colour Series, Krylon Spray Paint, my brush pen, scrap card stock, and a book made from used paper grocery sacks.

The Artistic Biker is me, Jonathan "Blade" Manning.
A treasure troll of a man, with hobbit feet and a sharp pointy head. You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast
