spqrblues: (Ave Sweetums)

Yesterday's warmup: An ATC-size mini-painting using the ancient pigments. This particular paper (Strathmore cold press watercolor artist cards) started feathering at the underpainting, so I didn't try too much layering or detail, but I'm getting better at understanding how each individual pigment wants to be coddled.



I used all the pigments except the lapis lazuli blue. I'll save that for a fancier piece :)
