Rainy Day at the Ballard Farmers' Market
The weather challenged our ability to sketch. It was Urban Splashing Northwest style. You didn't need to pre-splash your water color paper, the rain did it for you! Despite the challenge it was a great day and the sun finally showed up at the end of our session.

Gail, can you remind me again of the Velazquez palette? handprint.com lists different ones because I know you included a quinochrodine - was it Quin gold, burnt sienna and ultramarine blue.
On the Bainbridge trip you also mentioned at least 3 additional colors including rose madder red. What were the other two?
I want to try limiting my palette a bit.
My friend uses these as the Velaquez pallette...I think it may be from Jan Hart's version of Velaquez...it is Quin gold, Quin Sienna, and Ultramarine Blue. I bought Jan Hart's watercolor book and the additional colors she seems to use quite frequently is cobalt blue, rose madder genuine$$$, aureolin yellow. The rose madder genuine is really pricey and a subtle reddish color but not real pure red...Daniel Smith has many of these in the stick form. What I was told is that the stick form is the best value. It is equivalent to about 1.5 to 2x as much as a normal Dan Smith tube. So ultimately cheaper. The rose Madder genuine was about 20.00 for the tube. I was surprised at how expensive. If you want to test it out before you buy. Next time I see you I can give you a little dab of each then you can decide if you want to buy them.ReplyDelete
Wow terrific work! I especially like your point of view with the canopy driving the perspective and your use of white and those clear washes - so fresh! Thanks for your comment on my sketch and I learn much by looking at your work. We did chat a bit before the big downpour lamenting about all the unemployed architects...
