My Palette

31 Jan 2009

Here is my palette — an entry for Everyday Matters Challenge #190. It is a Winsor & Newton Cotman travel set that I picked up at Dick Blick a couple months ago. It hasn’t seen much use yet, but I think that will change.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Arches watercolor paper, so today I bought a watercolor block of cold-pressed 140 pound paper (7 x10 inches). That’s what I used for this painting. I really like not having to prep the paper in any way. It’s nice to do a painting without fighting with curling paper.
