i like the process of selecting new watercolors. i usually buy a few at a time, use them, see how they work, then choose new colors accordingly.
neutral tint is one of my new favorites. i was seduced by the idea of mixing darks without losing transparency.
HERE is a dull, but informative video that explains.
i haven't done a lot of mixing with it yet, but i am excited about the prospect of a new deep bluish gray.
by itself it is gorgeous.
tomorrow i'm going to put it to work mixing lots of shades with the other colors in my palette.
random adventures with juicy blue watercolors at kitchen table headquarters.
if you aren't clear on how granulating watercolor behaves look at sodalite on the left. granulating.
and nuetral tint on the right. non-granulating.
the old visual journals come in very handy for these kinds of experiments.
back to the last episode of THE FALL. season 2 just came out and i'm already finished with it.
up to your own engrossing set of experiments?
i trust you'll keep me posted!
especially if they involve food, books, cats, paint, or travel.
