The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 30
Yellow Ochre is one of my palettes staples. I use it as one of my neutrals and rarely till now used Yellow Ochre on its own. You can bet I won't soon forget how wonderful this pigment is as a warm yellow. Since it is transparent, it mixes well with others and why I have used it as a neutral and a neutralizing color. It creates beautiful warm greens added to Cerulean blue. Until the "Swatch This" Challenge, I was mistakenly under the impression this work horse was too opaque to use in successive washes. I know better now. I was very happy with the way I was able to capture the exact color of my new grand nieces outfit with just yellow ochre in various values.

“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.
