Another extraordinary view of morning as the sun rises above a body of water. Mist skates silently across the gentle ripples.

The tiny Altoid Tin is working well for me .  I wished I had a cool red rather than a warm red this morning, but I worked with what I had.

The palette is cadmium yellow light, cadmium red, french ultramarine blue, sap green and burnt sienna.  I used all but the burnt sienna in the two studies of Maranacook Lake.

The sponge works well to keep the colors from spilling into each other when not in use as well as keeping the pigment from drying out.  I store the tin in a snack-size zip lock bag.
