Tuesday's Tips and Techniques for Watercolor Painting
Dig out that old watercolor palette. Maybe there is a color waiting there that you have not used in a very long time. Perhaps it will become your new favorite old color.
Here is a picture of a palette I have not used in a few years. Permanent Violet Bluish is a color that I have had in all my palettes since ummm 1998. This palette is not that old though, I think I put it together in the early 2000s. The turn of the current century!
MaimeriBlu's Avignon Orange, Dragon's Blood and Garnet Lake. I love these colors! These are three colors I chose based solely on their names. Yes, I am guilty of this. It's gotta a cool name and I want to try it. Garnet because it's my birthstone. Dragon's Blood, it's a mythical magical color. I will be incorporating these colors in upcoming projects.
