Over the years, I have collected quite a few tubes of paint. I suspect that this is a compulsion of a lot of artists--we can't start looking at a catalog, or walk into a store without making a purchase. The colors--they're so pretty!
My weakest spot for paints is Daniel Smith, and lucky me, I just noticed they are running a web special through today for 15% off. I think Daniel Smith makes fabulous watercolors--I love the intensity of colors and the way the paints flow.
I have so many that I finally put together a table of all my paint tubes at two values. How do they mix and fit together? I
am trying to start looking at that as part of my small abstract series
of paintings. Here is a small landscape called Tree Line, that's semi-abstract. It includes 4 colors: Daniel Smith Prussian Blue, Quinacridone Burnt
Orange, Quinacridone Violet, and Burnt Umber from Maimeriblu. It's on a
scrap piece of 300 lb paper, and is about 6 x 4.5 inches.
