Watercolor on 90lb Aquabee paper, 3.5″x6″
One of a few sketches I was working on in preparation for a larger painting. The colors I used were German vine black (PBk8, Rublev), a pan premix I made of rich green gold (PY129, Daniel Smith) and tiny amount of shungite black ochre (self made, pigment from Natural Pigments), a white I made from marble dust, and a small touch of a couple of others. It’s not perfect, but I like the style of it. Maybe it’s kind of dreamy? I need to plan out the water better for the final version.
