The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 71
BLACK WATERCOLOR GROUND
As you can see, I have run out of granulating watercolors, which was the original reason for the challenge. I have coincidentally run out of sketchbook. So I am taking short break while I wait for my online order of some granulators I don't have and a new sketchbook. They should arrive in the next few days. In the meantime, I tired out my set of Jean Haines iridescent watercolors from Daniel Smith on a black watercolor ground, also by Daniel Smith. They certainly are gorgeous, but I feel like a duck out of water here. Fun to play, need to think of reasons. See you tomorrow with another watercolor ground while I wait for more supplies.

“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.
