"Painting is an island whose shores I have skirted." --Chardin
Fourth of July weekend turned into Fourth of July week.
Did a little painting... These are trumpet vines I picked in an empty lot. I have a large vine in my yard, but it has never produced flowers!
Hi again Laura,Nice bright colors.Can you tell me What brand( s) of watercolor you use? And of course I would love to see your palette. I want to try paints in pans, artist quality, and am curious if you or someone can guide me inThe brands.Ex comparing Winsor Newton with Schmincke.Louise
Hi Louise. I use several brands--windsor Newton, Daniel Smith, Sennelier, Holbein, and Schmincke. They're all great. I do prefer WN raw sienna and cerulean to others'; they seem brighter to me. And then there are colors only available in certain brands, like DS green apatite genuine or Holbien's bright violet.I also try to But colors that are made from one pigment, not a mix.But I have to say I've spent years chasing the "right" colors--and as a result have an insane number of tubes--when I probably should have spent more time 1) exploring the colors I did have and 2)working on my control of the ratio of paint to water, which, I'm becoming increasingly convinced, is one of the keys to brilliant color.I'll post some palette pictures soon.
Look at that beauty! You have quite a way with water & glass Laura!
