After painting with my present palette of watercolors for the past year, I decided I needed to switch things up a bit and add some new colors. For me, it took a year of messing around with the colors I had to figure out what I was missing.
When the new colors arrived I went to town filling up some new half pans and trying to think about a logical way to organize my tray. I said good-bye to my old palette card and tucked it away inside my sketchbook.
Then I carefully made a new palette card. Trying not to be too precise but still wanting to be sure and fit 12 boxes in each row.
Next it was time to fill in the boxes. Without putting the wrong color in the wrong box or smearing them all up and getting mad and having to start over. Nope. I did not do any of those things.
Painting little square shapes inside little square boxes is soothing. Extremely therapeutic.
I am now officially ready to rumble!
