Watercolor & Gessoed Bristol Board, WIP
Thanks to Rhonda of the Colorful Watercolor group for the tip that paint applied to gessoed paper or Yupo works best with less water.
My palette for this painting is mostly granulating colors. The only pale yellow (not earth tones) that I have that granulates is Daniel Smith's Nickel Titanate Yellow which is semi-transparent and non-staining. Along with that yellow, my palette, at this point, includes French Ultramarine Blue, Indanthrone Blue (for darks), Ultramarine Violet, Undersea Green, Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, Viridian.
This one painting will be submitted to two online groups. Painting Friends has a Friday Foto challenge and I chose the photo for this week from the Wet Canvas RIL This same photo is also ideal for learning textures and colors which we are studying at the Colorful Watercolor Yahoo group.
