Mossy Rest - Work in Progress

I made a quick stop at my favourite local art store today and picked up a couple of Daniel Smith watercolour paints (serpentine green, sap green, and buff titanium)to play with. I probably have more than enough paints to keep me busy for a long time........ but who can resist new colours! I've used the new colours in the mossy bits (lots of work let there) and so far I love the yellowish greens. My undersea green (Daniel Smith) makes a perfect shadowing green (with a touch of burnt sienna in the deepest shadows).

Hi Vicki! I have to admit... that I absolutely adore my Daniel Smith paints. :) Especially the primetek ones... so many colours, so little time. :)
