PAW-SCH -The Set-up (click to comment)
Welcome Back - short but sweet - about my watercolor color palette that I only use for dogs
I haven't a clue what each color is because I have had this for a very long time - I did have the sides of my palette marked with a 'sharpie' indicating the paint color but after time the names wore off - so it is a guessing game - however - I have the most important colors - Blue, Red and Yellow which are the primary colors
Other colors are purples, corals, oranges, bright blues, greens and earth colors. I don't use earth colors as I want the paw prints to be colorful, I can add earth tones after I have established my composition when the paw prints dry on the paper.
So then I mix colors as vibrant as I can with as much water as I can to maintain the color - they look awesome now but believe me when I'm finished with dipping the paws into these colors it becomes a mash-up of colors ..
Check out my next Blog to see what I do with the paper
