So I have gone on a colour diet – using only a triad (plus maybe a burnt sienna occasionally such as the sketch on the right!) I am learning a lot about mixing … it is not hard to mix the colour I want but I want to be able to do it the most efficient way…so am having fun exploring and refining the order and quantities of the various paints. Still got a way to go before I am happy that I have achieved this.
I am not desperately missing some of my favourite paints like I thought I would … I am missing them but it is not a crisis not to have them. I am missing the granulation and I am not liking having so many over mixed colours…and really dislike how dirty my water is!
With these things being my own explorations this week… you can imagine how much I am looking forward to doing a lesson on colour (watercolour) tomorrow at Balmoral.
