New Palette

Have finally gotten the last colors I needed to complete my preferred watercolor palette, so now I’m doing all the swatching to see what I’ve got available to work with. Creating a swatch book of all potential mixes between all twelve colors. I don’t have a lot of time or patience to work on it, so it’s going slowly, but I’ll get it done eventually. So far I’ve done four, so I’m already one-third done!

Probably should have used the good paper for this, but it’s pricey, and I’d rather use it for making actual art. This’ll have to do, and it will do. All this work is just to have a visual reference when I want to mix a specific sort of color and can’t recall exactly which two colors will get me there (or close). It’s also an excuse to play with my newest paints without feeling like I have to be making art. 😁

Had some surprises yesterday, when I encounter my first heavily granulation pigment (the green oxide), so I took some time to play around with what it was doing. Here are some samples of that.

Now it’s time for lunch, so I’m going to scrounge around for something to eat, and then I’m going to enjoy lazily enjoy the pleasant weather we are finally having. Have a great weekend!
