Watercolor, 8 x 9 inches
Nunjabi Book I
I was looking through Diana Nyad's blog on Sunday as she prepared to swim from Cuba to Florida. At 61. Without a shark tank. I couldn't help but notice the Cuban skies in the photos. That's my inspiration.
I looked at my palette and thought, not with those colors! I've hung onto my palette color arrangement for way too long. I'm sick of it!
Right now, in my Online Drawing and Watercolor Course we're concentrating on palette colors and mixing. Palette choice and mixing are on my mind in a bigger than usual way. So, I grabbed a couple boxes of paint tubes and rather unceremoniously rifled through them looking for a cure.
Here's what I came up with:
(All M. Graham except for last Old Holland) Cadmium Yellow Light (love it!), Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Teal, Viridian, Quinacridone Rose and Old Holland King's Blue Deep.
Oooh! I want to put aside all my teaching and computer work and paint the days away. I'll make another with this group and predict a change is a comin' in my big palette. ____________________________________________
