Trickle Down


I did get some painting done yesterday and will work on this more this weekend. I made the salmon color from Rhodonite Genuine and a touch of Raw Sienna (both Daniel Smith paints). The small, slender shoots at the bottom are misketed right now.
Since we are having 60F weather today and dry, I'm going to go out and take a long walk to try to walk off some of the calories I accumulated this week!

Rhonda I have never heard that daniel smith color. Do you like that brand? Also, how do you get your miskit on so thin? My mask usually just gets gunky.

I use only Daniel Smith colors and he's always coming out with new things I just have to have! The Rhodonite Genuine I use in place of Opera - it's a lovely pinkish color that can be bold or pale, depending on how much water you mix with it. The misket is Pebeo Drawing Gum - it is very thin to start and can even be thinned down more with water - very nice and it never gets gunky and thick. I like it much better than anything else I've seen or tried. I think you can get it at CheapJoe's.

It is looking good!

Thanks, Vicki! I hope I can keep up the momentum on this one. I've cropped off the edges so far and it looks a bit better to me.
