Had a color fit this week, painted across the spread in my sketchbook. The black lines are freehand drawn with a permanent brush pen, with watercolor and a few touches of white gouache.
On Winsor and Newton 90lb hot press, about 8″ x 10″. Paints used? Oh, goodness.
- PB16 Phthalo turquoise
- PV19 Quin Rose
- the same with PB29 Ultramarine to make the violet
- PO62 benzimidazolone orange
- PO71 transparent pyrrole orange
- PY150 Nickel Azo yellow
- PO49 Quin Gold
- PG18 Viridian
- and PH Martin’s Bleedproof white for a few highlights on some interior wing feathers. (The beak, eye, and wingtip marks are saved whites.)
Erm. I think that’s my world’s record for the most pigments used in the same painting!
