Clear and brightPosted: January 22, 2014
In celebration of the great sawing off of the cast on my painting hand I went out to do some car sketching today. It’s super cold out there but I preheated the car well and was able to do a quick capture of the light on the statue near the convent in Pointe Claire.
It’s not often that I add new colours to my palette but I’ve been trying out Indanthrone Blue (sometimes called Indanthrene Blue) and I like it enough to make it a permanent addition. It’s darker than the other blues I have and mixes beautifully with Alizarin Crimson for shadows. A warning if you decide to buy it: I can’t confirm this but apparently Daniel Smith has a redder tint than Winsor Newton (according to handprint.com).
