|The unicycle of watercolor|
I call it the unicycle of watercolor because you can make ONE entire color WHEEL from a SINGLE primary triad. It's minimal, takes a little skill to become expert with it but it will get you around any landscape or urban sketch with a minimum of extraneous baggage. And I RE-CYCLED my empty eyeshadow case!
1 empty eyeshadow case, washed and dried
A sponge cut to fit the applicator tray*
Three primary watercolors:
- Phthalo Blue (RS) Daler-Rowney
- Quinacridone Rose (M Graham)
- Permanent Lemon Deep (Holbein)
Mix your colors in the lid when travel sketching.
*Use the dampened sponge to clean your waterbrush between colors
I surprised my watercolor class this morning by giving this away in a drawing. Congratulations to Joan for winning the drawing!
