I’m Done or Paint Night Fail

I ask you dear reader, what do you do when your soul is tired? I’m really feeling it tonight.  I’m a bit disappointed in myself, because I wanted to keep this blog mostly positive.    I just don’t have it in me tonight though.   It’s been a busy weekend, one thing after another. I have a lot on my mind. I reserved tonight for my watercolors. I need this creativity time to preserve my sanity. I’m working on a tutorial for painting flowers. It all started fine.  Began by setting up my work area mixing my paint colors.    I’m loving this Opera  rose mixed with Cobalt Violet. Sure, the rose color may fade in time(fugitive) but this is a practice painting and the bold color is refreshing.  I have heard that they actually put fluorescent dye in the paint.    I don’t know if that’s true or not,  but I sure enjoyed the brightness of the color.  My favorite paint brand is Daniel Smith but I also Like Winsor Newton. Mijello sent me a sample Lemon yellow I am utilizing tonight. I love the bold glow.
