I\'ve been busy with a local class and Kateri Ewing\'s Craftsy Class--Startup Library: Painting with Watercolors. While she uses a split primary palette +3 additional colors...I decided to take all the colors I had, and liked, from previous instructors to create this color chart.
Completed watercolor mixing chart. What I learned from doing this.
• The stair step chart has become my preferred means of charting various mixes of watercolors. @scratchmadejournal.com/guides-and-printables
• I have found similar color mixes on this chart, helpful in choosing my pigments.
• Go by pigment code because some are given different color names by different brands and color appearance varies little to none, unless a second pigment color is added. (e.g. PR101 light red, mars brown, venetian red, indian red, burnt sienna, sepia) @handprint.com/HP/WCL/watere.html#PR101
• Don\'t let the cat in...even if she wishes to be the studio cat.
• Out of tube greens are not natural and must be mixed with an earth yellow, or most any blue to look from nature.
• Single Pigment Quinacridone Gold (PO49), now no longer available, appears to be a brighter version of Yellow Ochre (PY43).
• I could probably go without the buff titanium, and be a traditionalist...use the white of my paper and tint the colors lighter using appropriate water to paint ratio.

Today is meant to be a day where you can take a break and spend some festive time with your family. It’s actually held at different times of the year in different parts of the world, but a day like this deserved
Your family gatherings sound a lot like ours used to be. These days the family is spread all over the world – England, Australia, Ecuador, Africa and both the West and East Coast of the U.S. It’s pretty rare that many of us get together all at once, but I’m lucky that they all try to get here every few years. I actually prefer it that way. You get to spend more one on one time with every one. I love your fruit tray, and I actually have some grapes available so I can go munch on some.
Love your fruit tray and your memories of family gatherings. I remember family reunions at my uncle’s farm…spending time with cousins, uncles, grandparents, aunts and uncles, fishing in the pond, picking and eating fresh sweet corn…ah, the memories. Times certainly do change.
Aww see?? That’s precisely why we are friends, Sarah! 😃💕 hehe… you can totally picture Phineas doing that, can’t you? lol And thank you so much for choosing your favorite words. That means a lot to me. I often feel these are just rough rambles, but when you show my words back to me, they seem a bit more special. 😊
I don’t know how I missed this yesterday. But thought I’d share that one of the first times I was at Joe’s mom’s house for Thanksgiving I brought a wonderfully tasty sweet sour cabbage side dish. I’m afraid I took a lot of it home. But it was delicious!
