Then I played with her in watercolors: Daniel Smith and Golden’s QoR.
I enjoyed hitting a new palette today, bright pinks and maroon.
Gemstone, transparent and opaque watercolors: Sleeping Beauty Turquoise,
Hematite, Quinacridones, Cobalt Blues, Sap Greens, and of course,
Lapis Lazuli and Caput Mortem and Indanthrone for the sky.
I am not used to working with opaque paints — I like transparent paints best.
At one point she was too dark and murky,
and I tried removing paint by adding water.
Then I played with painting with water over dried colors in several.
It’s all an experiment, and speaking of Zen,
having child’s mind is best in all things creative:
inquisitive, play-full, a grand game where nobody wins and it goes on and on.
