Schmincke Translucent Orange…

May 8, 2014 | 4 Comments


…..a colour I love but is not in my standard palette. It is a wonderful colour but I now use Daniel Smith Transparent Pyrrol Orange which is deeper (more versatile as a warm red) so the Trans. Orange got taken out. Stunning pigment I miss it!!!!

Flowers in my studio- trying to sketch them before they die…


seriously… you will never believe me if I say that I don’t have coffee/tea and cake all the time..will you? (not sure what I was trying to achieve with the left hand side… but the right hand side of the spread is fairly clear – I love blue cups!)


  • The orange is gorgeous and I too like it with the olive green. If one can eat cake all the time, I firmly believe one should! I love cake!!

    thanks sherry…actually I can't eat too much cake… once or twice a week is plenty for me!

    thanks Dean! welcome to my blog. I have no problem at all writing as my hand is below the text. I write with my pen at 45 degree angle.

  • Came across your blog in the past week. Loving it! Great to see your progression over the years. As a lefty, how do you find writing in fountain pen on any but the smoothest papers?
