Started over on the sea grape painting.  This looks more warm than it is = it's actually a lemony yellow laid down first, leaving open white areas.  I then drew over that with colored watercolor pencils and will begin painting, leaving white and yellow areas behind the trunks.

I put down swatches of color of the granulating colors and "tree trunk" colors I wanted to use in this one.  I have a lot to choose from and some good granulating colors (all from Daniel Smith).

Rhonda will be looking forward to seeing this painting unfold. Daniel Smith's paints are some of my favorites too. Hope you are staying dry - we are floating here. Have a super day.

Quin gold is a favorite of mine, but I love the Goethite!

Thanks, Debbie. We are having our first day of sunshine today but predictors say rain begins tonight and tomorrow - looks like spring has slipped by in a wet way and summer has begun in the same way. But still the flowers are lovely.

Thanks, Laurie and Laura. I like the Quin Gold, too, but Goethite added to anything makes a neat granulation color :)
