| above 9x9 pastel and watercolor / below 9x9 only watercolor on Uart|
After reading Russell Chatham's interview and seeing the youtube yesterday it got me to thinking about less, yes even less.
Typically, I use a warm and cool of each primary plus white. Russell uses just three colors. So I chose my 3: quinacridone magenta, aureolin yellow and ultramarine blue, all my color choices are transparent. Chatham's words had echoed the same things I had read from Whistler- "all the work takes place on the palette."
So this is from a memory last summer. Steeny and I were watching a moonrise in LaConner Wa. It was beautiful. The color appeared bright, but sunset/rise is a grayed tone. Brightness is by simultaneous contrast.
I ordered my tototobobo mask two days ago. Since it comes from Singapore I paid for federal express delivery. I can't wait .....I will be back to pastels probably today! Thanks Brenda and Barbara for your help.
Addition: I just received my mask and immediately added a tiny bit of pastel to my watercolor. (top painting) I like it better. Now I will go redeem myself with another painting.
