Watercolour course - week 1. Colour wheel

    Newer Older

    There's some weird scratchiness to some of the colours in the wheel. Originally thought it was my paints, but now I actually think it was my brush selection. Using a round was far better than a filbert.

      These are Mon Martre 'Professional Series' pans. They're very vivid! I like them but am not sure whether the graininess you see through the violets is due to the quality of the paint or something else entirely. They're fun but still reasonably cheap. Which I like. I have also just bought a few tubes of Cotman watercolours to play with. If I really get into it, I'm going to splurge and buy myself an $80 set of windsor&newtons pans.

      I'm basically self taught. I've done some textile workshops but no formal study. Having said that, everything in my life seems to revolve around creating. Jack of all trades is completely applicable to me. I play the guitar, djembeh, flute, piano and I sing. I'm ok at all of them, but y'know not a master of any of them. Keeps life interesting though!
