As I mentioned last week, I have added Daniel Smith Lavender to my palette for a bit of fun. I doubt this is a permanent change but it’s just a way to shake things up.
In the last number of months, I keep hearing people talk about this colour so I thought I should have a play with it. But I haven’t worked out how to use it yet… so I thought I would ask for suggestions!
I did mention that I took out Buff Titanium at the same time but I wasn’t implying that Lavender was a substitute for it. Although when I mix it with Naples Yellow it does create an interesting buff-like wash – I think this was an idea I got from Shari Blaukopf who convinced me a few months ago to put Naples Yellow back in my palette. Of course both of these paints are opaque and contain white (PW6) so have to be used with intent to prevent murky washes.
So I would love to hear from you… Have you tried Lavender (in Daniel Smith or another brand)? What do you think of it? What do you use it for?
