more washes

A couple more washes to brighten a January day.  Such great therapy!


 #87 a mix of quin gold, winsor orange, alizarin crimson, cobalt turquoise.  Very wet in wet, letting the first layers dry before adding darker tone.


#88 quin gold, winsor orange and violet, and a little blue watercolor ink I found in my supplies that must be 10 years old but still fine to use.

Hi Christy,

These colours are so vibrant - they are almost luminous. I'm fascinated by the ink. I bought some a while ago but haven't really worked out how to incorporate them into my work. This is a great way to do it. I'll have to play with it a bit. Thank you for posting this. I love #88 in particular.

Thanks Vandy! Yes, I think playing is always the key word to see what unique things develop for you. Then of course, remembering to write down what you liked!
