I needed a break from painting paint I decided to paint my camera since it is a very important tool in my studio. This painting actually took me 2 days to complete and so didn't work on it just for today.
Today I chose to paint quinacridone rose for a couple of reasons. One is that it is an awesome color. The other is because it is the same as permanent rose. I usually include permanent rose on my supply lists for my classes. However, if you have quin rose, that works just as well.
Next are the reds in my palette, starting with an extremely versatile and must have color - Permanent Alizarin Crimson. I am not a big fan of using it alone but love to mix with this color, especially when making darks. And it must be the permanent kind, not the regular alizarin crimson.
I am quite pleased that I have painted everyday this month so far. I use to paint nearly everyday but fell out of the routine the past couple of years for personal reasons. Getting back into the routine has sparked my imagination and ideas are starting to flow.
