The Color Journal


Radishes

Playing with a summer palette of colors I call "Sweet Radishes". It's a beautiful fresh combination of colors that invokes images of a fresh summer meadow, a dazzling summer garden, or an open air market place.

The primary medium here is Neocolor II Water Soluble Pastels in: Purplish Red, Carmine, Spring Green, Bismuth Green, Dark Beige, and Sepia.

I also made palette swatches in Peerless Watercolors, Koi Watercolors, Angora Watercolors, Sennelier Soft Pastels (Diluted), and Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils.

Keeping a color journal is a vital part of my art fitness and this journal is my Stillman & Birn "Alpha" Series Sketchbook, perfect for multi-media color journaling.
