upcoming workshop


Next weekend I'll be in Washington DC with my friends Shelby and Lori to take a two-day "gestural florals" workshop with Jackie Saunders at the Torpedo Factory.
Today I put together this palette with the colors she recommends and a couple I can't do without, cobalt violet and ultramarine violet. I always make a little diagram of the colors to tape to the lid:
These are a few additional colors that I think I may want (the little tubs sold for the Possum Palette are perfect for colors that won't fit on your palette; the snap-on lids keep most paints moist indefinitely):

And I'm out of Antwerp blue, which Jackie recommended, so I tried out these dark blues looking for a substitute and decided on the W&N indanthene blue (on the far left).



 
Now to try out my new palette on some pale pink lilies.

Clean color indeed! My palettes always end up a mess. I use them until I can't stand it anymore and wash it all out to start over again. Have a blast at the workshop, Laura. I know you will!

Wow. Nice. But no greens at all and some other colors that I don't think I would be able to find. looks like a challenge (which I know you enjoy).

There are 2 greens: hooker's and Daniel Smith's apatite genuine, which is a lot like sap (which I'm out of!)
Anything you can't find, I'll find for you!

Shows what an eye for color I have. I'm seeing them now right where they should be. You know that Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green for me . . .
