W paintings: with the passage of time, the colours and brush sizes started to take on some significance which I wanted to portray uncluttered by technical differences if possible.
– Colours: some of the colours therefore are now chosen from the Daniel Smith range which has genuine colours, made from the actual material they represent.
– 2019.07.30 REGULAR COLOUR PALETTE: Magenta, Amethyst gen., Rhodonite gen., Permanent Rose, Winsor Red Deep, Venetian Red, Raw Sienna, Aureolin, Turner’s Yellow, Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, Perylene Green, Terre Verte, Jadeite gen., Lapis Lazuli gen., Manganese Hue, Mayan Blue gen., Phthalo Turquoise, Indanthrene Blue, Indigo
(removed Ultramarine and Sap Green) (replaced Cerulean with Lapis Lazuli gen, Indian Red with Venetian Red, Prussian Blue with Phthalo Turquoise) (added Amethyst, Rhodonite, Mayan Blue and Jadeite, all genuine)
– 2019.12.31 REGULAR COLOUR PALETTE: Rhodonite Genuine, Permanent Rose, Winsor Red Deep, Italian Venetian Red, Raw Sienna, Aureolin, Turner’s Yellow, Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, Perylene Green, Terre Verte, Jadeite Genuine, Lapis Lazuli Genuine, Manganese Blue Hue, Mayan Blue Genuine, Phthalo Turquoise, Indanthrene Blue, Indigo, Amethyst Genuine, Permanent Magenta
(changed Venetian Red to Italian Venetian Red)(updating order and name corrections)
– Brushes: I had an odd assortment of brushes and gradually collected sable round sizes 1 – 10 representing the 10 commandments or something and in order to keep proportions the same I gradually chose all Isabey 6227z brushes. That is now done with the exception of n.9 which is unavailable to me in that model and which is the Isabey 6227, the only difference, I think, being the length of the handle which is not likely to impact on proportion of brush stroke.

These are some of the colours chosen for the W paintings, mixed together for no reason and with no purpose other than to use them. The resulting watercolours will now be added after the W painting they relate to.
