And now to get back in business, I started the next watercolor painting last night after the kitchen was cleaned up. Mind you, I'm juggling too many apples right now and don't know how I even managed to walk downstairs to my studio. Some internal messaging was happening. Maybe it's all the art business classes I've been taking? The bad girl inside my head is being knocked down by good intentions I guess.
The to-do list, or task list as we've been instructed to call it, had quite a few things on it for yesterday, but I was able to mark each one off and move on. I purchased the tube of paint I wanted and now I can continue.
There's no way you can mix colors without the primaries. Nope. I needed a yellow, and I couldn't remember what my paint was called. Permanent Yellow Light? No. I ended up with a Cadmium Yellow Lemon.
Okay, I know cadmiums are toxic. I will not be eating the paint.
Also, not thrilled with the latest brushes I purchased. I keep turning back to my old sable Windsor & Newton brushes. When I wet the large Issabey brush and paint with it, it gets mushy. There's no spring to it. That was a pricey brush even on sale. You can't try a brush in the store to know how it will respond. So, stuck with it.
Enough drama for today. Time to get to work.
