Last Thursday I decided to ask you a question “Why do you sketch?” and was blown away by the responses. If you missed it, I suggest you read through all the amazing comments here.
This week my question is much easier… perhaps!
It’s something I have been thinking about a lot lately as I prepare the lessons for my upcoming online course – SketchingNow Watercolour. I’ve been thinking about colour and how we all have such distinct personal preferences. So…
What is your favourite paint colour? or two … or five!
My favourite colour is turquoise and favourite watercolour paint is Winsor and Newton’s Cobalt Turquoise Light. (Daniel Smith’s version is called Colbalt Teal Blue)
Using this colour just makes me happy!
I have a few other paints that I adore:
DS Monte Amiata Natural Sienna – a gorgeous glowing earth yellow
DS Transparent Red Oxide – a wonderful crazy granulating transparent earth red
DS Cerulean Blue Chromium – a lively blue which is also granulating and the colour of Australian blue skies
and last of all, a paint which I love but doesn’t make it into my sketching palette as I just don’t use it enough for it to justify a spot – Schmincke Translucent Orange
So now it is your turn!
You are allowed to list a maximum of five colours – ok?
( I can’t help wondering if there will be a few popular colours or whether it will be completely random.)
