Beginning a painting with a color scheme in mind has become a useful new habit. At the end of this weekend’s en plein air event at the vineyard I had sixteen small watercolor paintings, each exhibiting color harmony!
I used my large, John Pike palette rather than one of my smaller, more portable palettes. I find it easier to work with and re-wet the paint when I am painting in the sun. I have two of these palettes. I cut every other divider out of this one to make wider paint wells.
A great weekend of sunshine and friendship.
