Day 677 – another 

Lucy June aged 90 Painting done Thursday. I really like her knitted scarf. 
The palette. Most of the colors are Winsor Newton or Holbein though I substituted Daniel Smith Quin gold. 

Ted chose these colors because they are transparent watercolor. And NO not all watercolor is transparent. Cerulean isn’t. Both he and Jean Dobie limit their palettes to those colors that are transparent which allows their watercolors to have a great depth of color done with multiple layers. If they were not transparent the colors would turn to mud. 

Thanks for reading.
