    I always have problems working from my own photos. I can’t seem to impart the beautiful colors the masters use. I do studies to learn but have difficulty translating those into my own work. IMG_5538(Edited)

    • This is gorgeous! Try mixing some of your colors with PBK11 (Mars Black or Lunar Black). To see what I mean, check out my review here on the Paul Rubens Precipitating Color set. It makes me think of the Old Masters Palettes.

      • Hi Sandra! Thanks for guiding me to that review. I never would think of using Mars black , or any black for that matter. Your review and examples were enlightening. You are very proficient with watercolor. I can only hope to become more comfortable and expressive with my attempts at learning the medium. I also think that the watercolor sketchbook I am using doesn’t have the best paper. I need to practice on my more expensive Arches for better results. Thanks again for your encouragement and information!

    • Fabulous.

    • That’s briilant, Karen.

    • Excellent!
