my full pans and new metal palette arrived for my gouache. yippy hi yi yo!
i commenced to mixing colors. just call me madame mix-a-lot. stir stir stir swirl swirl swirl scrape rinse. next!
i decided to mix up a few new colors in an effort to keep my white gouache pan cleaner. actually i’m going to have 2 white pans. one for mixing, the other one will only be touched by a squeaky clean brush. no contaminants allowed!
i’m using my holbein gouache and also a dutch brand i picked up while i was in amsterdam.
spring break has begun. i’m heading off to the woods with my brother and sisters and their partners. we’re staying in some cabins for a few days.
to tide you over i have some links to share that are so good, they’re edible. go see for yourself. if they don’t make you want to break out your watercolors and sketchbook i don’t know what will!
first off, the link pam shared with me the other day. she knows i’m a blubbering fool over watercolorists lately. HERE are 5 fantastic watercolor tutorials by the hugely talented yao cheng. i can’t wait to get home and play with layering, mixing, and blending. can’t. wait.
back soon! talk amongst yourselves till i return.
