Maybe if I’d chosen different colors. I’m not a Winsor & Newton fan. It’s the only brand I can buy locally, which is why Blick (online) gets most of my business. Well, and Blick’s prices and service just cannot be beat. They will happily accept returns of opened merchandise for up to a year. Who does that? Certainly none of my local craft/art supply stores.
Anyway, many of you, like me, enjoy lighthouses, and I hope you enjoy this one. Colors: winsor red, winsor orange, wn rose madder, MG cad yellow …. and after the sky and water were finished (had to do a second layer of rose madder to pump up the sky, which is why I’m crabby), I used Graham colors (alizarin crimson, ultramarine, cad yellow) to mix my black, so the lighthouse at least would be vibrant. M. Graham gets my vote every time for price and quality, neither of which IMO can be beat. I’ll soon be trying Daniel Smith as well, as I hear good things.
Happy Wednesday! Is anyone ready for fall yet? Looking forward to those autumn colors showing up in everyone’s artwork. Peace and peppy paint to all!
