Every day in May no. 13


I dabbled a bit with my Kremer pigment watercolors this evening, they are a bit different to paint with than the ones I usually use (mostly Winsor & Newton). I like them, I like the way they granulate and behave differently than the others - I am often surprised by the results of color mixing with these colors, they have a mind of their own. What I don´t like is the fact that I can´t get a decent pink or violet out of them... I am going to have to add a magenta of some sorts to this box, otherwise I can´t get the colors I want. Frustrating.

8 x 12, watercolors without drawing on a small Moleskine Watercolor spread.

Oh wow, this is just gorgeous! The colors remind me of vintage material or wallpaper. I just LOVE the colors and the flowers. :)

I haven't come across that brand before. You certainly have produced a lovely piece with them!

This looks beautiful. I have often wondered about Kremer watercolors - they're more opaque than most brands aren't they? Oh, and since this is one of my favorite blogs, you are hereby tagged. Visit my blog for details. caseytoussaint.wordpress.com

WOW, Nina. I love playing with Kremers, too, for the granulating colors, and they make dynamite blue grays.

I always go back to W&N and DS, though...gotta have more transparency!
