Even though it may have started out being a snowy day here in the East, the snow broke through the clouds and gave beautiful light for starting a new painting today.
It took quite a while to get the sketch on the paper, so I was anxious to at least start getting some paint to the paper. By mid to late afternoon I was happy to start, even though my assistant “cough-cough, Toaster” tried to get in the water.
Working with Winsor & Newton watercolors on 300 cold pressed paper.
So far I’ve used 10 colors just on these two gems and I will still go back to them!
This could take awhile…….
Meanwhile, any suggestions for a name for this painting?
Working on getting some more layers added to this commission piece. Gradually adding more layers of color. This session I used cadmium yellow, burnt sienna, raw umber, burnt sienna, French ultramarine blue, payne’s gray, raw sienna, burnt umber, indigo, cadmium orange, permanent mauve, winsor violet, and a various mixture of some of those colors. Not in that particular order, btw, I’m just trying to remember all the colors I used today to tell you, lol. Light was great for painting today, but time to call it a day. Have a great rest of the weekend everybody!

Yesterday I started a watercolor paper exercise on the benefits of quality watercolor paper. I was really liking how the sky turned out, so I was anxious to pick it up and work on it today.
It is in the 80’s here, so why not paint a cool and snowy scene!
Happy painting everybody!
