Do you have colors you get fascinated by every once in a while? When you carry around a small, limited palette like I do, you need to make sensible color choices, but every so often I have in there a fun color. Right now my palette contains a gorgeous color called Daniel Smith Cobalt Teal Blue. And now that it’s on my colors-I-love list, I seem to “find” it in everything I paint.
Like in these macaw sketches.
Or in this watercolor of a summertime swim.
I even find it in minuscule (but quite visible) little quantities in just about any piece I paint. (Can you spot the streak of blue?)
Do you have a current favorite ‘fun color’? Or one you never thought would last but has come to live permanently in your palette?
