Yep, I just added more trees. I’m soooo slow at painting that it took me an hour. Okay, I did it and redid it (especially that misty bit at the bottom, which still needs work). Arts are hard! I’m really happy with this one so far.

I also filled my Portable Painter palette. Well, almost, because I have to get quinacridone rose tomorrow. I hope I can find it locally.


Here’s the breakdown:

First row: lemon yellow, cadmium yellow, cadmium red, [quinacridone rose], alizirin crimson, ultramarine blue

Second row: phthalo blue (my favorite color!), phthalo green, permanent sap green, yellow ochre, raw umber, payne’s gray

I’m waiting for them to dry. Hopefully I’ll be able to try them tomorrow after I get the rose. I have a purple I like (dioxyzine), but The Internet says that I need a rose instead because it’s more versatile. I figure I can always change it later. See? Progress!

In Puppy News, Penny taught Lucy how to climb the stairs to the porch, but she didn’t teach her how to get down. Lucy likes to climb them but then whines to be carried down. Sigh.
