|Westport is South of Belochantuy on the Atlantic Coast of Argyll.This is looking farther south toward Machrihanish from Westport on a misty, moisty afternoon!|
When the light is better tomorrow, I'll finish this. It still has the greeny gray masking fluid on it. This was a fun little piece to try!
I bought two- well THREE new colours today but one is boring old Raw Umber . The TWO are ..
1- Perylene Maroon
|Look how gorgeous it is! It is a stainer, not a granulator, works nicely with salt (look carefully) , and waters down stunningly! Going to be a real winner!|

This is a MAJOR STAR!!! It granulates to a HUGE degree. As Daniel Smith says- Anthraquinoid red floats, Ultramarine spreads and mixes and Vermilion greys the resulting purples. Look carefully. You can see red, blue , green and the purple mix. It is going to be a real workhorse colour. If I was a people painter, I'd REALLY use it on skin- shadows, hair etc. I think as a background colour too it will be gorgeous. BTW, both of the colour tests are on Hot Press paper, 140 lb. I don't really like the feel of hot press! I am a gritty, rough sort of girl, I guess!
Well, guess that's me done for today. My comp is almost out of battery power too so gotta plug in. Sweet dreams, One and ALL!
