The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 24
COBALT TEAL BLUE
Cobalt Teal Blue is standard on my palette for a good reason. This beautiful color finds its way into skies, tropical scenes and every other excuse I can find, like a parrot for instance. This pigment works equally well for patina on a copper pot or a rusty old piece of metal. An inorganic pigment, it is considered and non-staining and great for glazing methods, however it is a bit on the opaque side so layering is limited to a couple before it is covering and no longer transparent.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
