Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

Tools of my Trade, watercolor, 5″ x 7″

In response to this week’s challenge, I painted the tools that I use to create watercolor paintings:  my palette with paints in the wells and some puddles on the mixing surface, brushes, a roll of paper towels, a small spray bottle for wetting the paints, and two containers of water.   One container is used for rinsing brushes and the other is clean water for mixing with paints.

And I have to admit that my palette isn’t usually this clean.  The paints don’t stay in the wells and I don’t always rinse my brush before mixing a color, which results in dirty spots, especially in the yellows.

  1. it would have been interesting to see your palette not so clean… in the process of the creation… but this way too, it is very pleasant to see.

    • My normal tendency while painting is to edit and make a scene look more pleasing, however, your comment has given me an idea. I will keep an eye out for when my palette has an interesting mix of paint left on it and will try to pull a print of it.

    • Does this mean that you and ShimonZ want me to paint the mess on my palette, or give you a picture of it? I tried yesterday to pull a print of the leftover paint, but I used watercolor paper. It has so much texture that the image had a lot of interesting colors and textures, but didn’t resemble what had been on the palette.

I'm interested in hearing what you think!
