New Palette

A number of years ago, I wrote an extensive post on how I lay out my watercolor palette. After a deep clean and rearrangement the other day, I subtracted a few colors and added a few. Here's the new layout in my great big Thomas Lynch porcelain watercolor palette:

and what the colors look like on paper:

My colors are:

M. Graham: Azo Yellow, Gamboge, Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Blue, Anthraquinone Blue, Quinacridone Rose.

and Daniel Smith: Yellow Ochre, Goethite, Quinacridone Gold, Rich Green Gold, Green Gold, Serpentine Green, Cascade Green, Cobalt Teal, Manganese Blue, Imperial Purple, Rose of Ultramarine, Rhodonite Genuine, Perinone Orange, Deep Scarlet.

Now that the days are longer and the weather is warmer, I am ramping up for a whole new series of paintings. Mmmmm.... I love mixing color together and mixing color with water and flowing it onto fine paper. Just need a little time to pull my chops together. Stay tuned!

Well, if it makes you feel any better, it took me 51 years to buy this. Up till then, I used a field kit or any old thing.
