After taking a class with Judith Cassel-Mamet this August, I've gotten back into watercolor painting.
It reminded me of a process I practiced several years ago that helped me to "see" different hues and how to mix them to get just the right color.
I chose a page from a magazine and tried to see all the colors in the picture and then, reproduced them in watercolor. It helped me have confidence that I could replicate a specific color and not to rely just on the colors in my watercolor palette.
But there are some paints that are so unique, that I had to add them to my palette this week. I can't wait to get delivery of some Daniel Smith colors: Quinacridone Deep Gold and Quinacridone Violet. Actually, anything that starts with Quinacridone is a favorite of mine!
