Hooked On Color


If nothing else, I am a color-addict. Over the weekend, I indulged that fancy by making swatches from the watercolors in my secondary, fun palette. It was a good opportunity to practice with a larger brush, a #10 round, on a small piece of paper.

With the exception of Winsor & Newton Scarlet Lake, the paint comes from Daniel Smith. The Winsor & Newton box is only 5″ x 2.5″ and takes up so little space, it has become a fixture on my desk. Some days when I have no time to paint, I leave the box open just for the fun of gazing at the colors. Am I a cheap date or what?!
