Pools of bluePosted: December 27, 2014
Every time I open my palette to paint, the blobs of colour in the different wells have moved around on their own. The blues seem to be the worst offenders. Cerulean and Cobalt Teal are now on the lid and Ultramarine has slid across into another well. It’s my own fault. I should have filled the palette at home and let the colours dry for a few days before packing. Instead, I brought along tubes and refill the colours every few days. Because the palette is shiny plastic, and due to the high heat and humidity, the blobs of paint just slide across the surface, creating a bit of a mess for me. Fortunately, in these surroundings, there’s lots of reasons to use blues, including sketching the pool, which is a first for me.
