A few weeks ago I got a package from Russia with some new St Petersburg White Nights paints – including the six new colours in their pastel range and a gorgeous mauve paint tin. Thanks White Nights!
These colours are so out of character for me!!!! I normally use bright fresh colours or earth colours. I actually like pastels but I just don’t know what to do with them.
It’s also super weird to use watercolours which are so opaque (due to the PW6 white pigment) – it’s almost like using gouache. They appear to be more transparent and slightly darker when fully dry. And look at the colour of my dirty water container – so crazy.
But I have to admit they are super fun to paint with and I loved doing these swatches… so creamy and opaque. Yum!
I’m just not 100% sure how to use these paints. I have a few ideas, but any suggestions will be welcome!!!
