I am always looking for creating a mood in my watercolors.
I think that a good choice of colors is a great way to have good results.
Most of the time I use transparent pigments and I create my own colored greys from the primary colors.
I know, I couldn't keep from buying many colors but now I realize that many of my watercolors have been painted with only a small variety of pigments, and all my beautiful bought colors are
still on my palette.
I love using a lot of water, and splashing my paper.
