the painting is halfway complete. that brown window trim will be white tomorrow, not bird of paradise pink. i love the sundried tomato trim. the old trim was the putty brown you see above on the window. ick.
which one of you want to come and plant a trailing fragrant herb in my kitchen window box?
my 2 travel palettes with the names of paint written underneath. mostly daniel smiths with some winsor newton and a couple of holbein.
some of the colors look almost the same, but they make different mixes. i love the swipe of paint across the cold press paper. mmmmmmm.
i don’t have a black but i can make some dreamy darks.
the swatches below are tints – paint mixed with titanium white. that’s why i have it in my palette, for times when i want to have a bit of gouache-like paint.
i made this car sketch today. apparently, i don’t know what the date is when i’m on the lam. this little journal that i use for mostly live sketching is my inspirtation for my guatemala travel journal. i love these quick studies i do in the car. maybe i can hire a tuk-tuk driver in antigua to cart me around and tuk-tuk sketch. hmmmmmm….. it’s an idea worth exploring.
