Painting the Blues

After a long evening of storms passing through and tending to terrified dogs (not to mention owner), I finally managed some painting tonight.  Nothing extravagant...........just playing with my blues on my palette.

My scanner didn't exactly scan these blues 100 % correctly but they are close.

I love the Phthalo Blue Green shade!!!!

I may have to pull out my Winsor & Newton pigments and do some comparisons.......especially Blues and Siennas.  

This is using The Langton 140lb Cold press.  I haven't used this paper in some time!!!

Interesting exercise Susan! How many colors do you have on your palette?

5 blues of which 3 I normally use.....2 are highly staining so I don't use them too often; 4 yellows where I normally stick with using 1 most often; 2 true reds; 2 reddish/violet; 2 greens; 3 earth tones and paynes gray I seldom use. Also have quin gold, and quin burnt sienna squeezed out on lid I don't use too often. My palette has 18 wells.

I'm working on my other colors today similar to this one with different subjects. Then I want to compare a few of my DS pigments side by side with W&N pigments.

As to the power.......yeah....it only went out for a short time and came back on, thank goodness.....lol
