Happy Easter! I’ve saved up my efforts for this occasion as I felt it apt to mirror this colorful event. Here I present to you my brand new color diary which I have been working on since Spring break.
It was about time that I seriously taught myself how to paint with watercolors and I started off my education with learning the different combinations I could get with the color sets I own. Here I’ve listen down the default colors from my Windsor and Newton Sketcher’s Box and did color swatches with them. As you can see my painting application feels a bit shoddy. But discovering the new colors makes me very happy indeed.
Still not used to it, but this was an attempt on doing a wet on dry technique. Not so happy with my values but the colors are starting to shape up into my preferred aesthetic.
A roundup of my materials: Prang Oval Pan Watercolor Set, Windsor and Newton Pocket Plus Traveller set, Pink Pentel watercolor tube gifted to me by Sandra Dans, metallic mixing plate, and cheap chinese calligraphy brush for rendering.
