7/13/09 Watercolor over Graphite , 11 X 14
I've been experimenting more and more with opaque watercolors so some parts of the painting are wet-in-wet transparencies and some drier opaques–contrasting the 2 approaches. Favorite opaques of the season seem to be Venetian Red, Winsor Newton an earthy rich orangy red, and Cadmium Red Purple, Holbein, a red with blue tinges. Jaune Brilliant #1 is a slightly orangy yellow with lots white by Holbein.
