My new collection of watercolors offer the opportunity to play with color mixes and previously untried color combinations. Some are colors I have had around for quite some time now. Sap green, yellow ochre, ultramarine blue, like old friends. Others I had left behind and have now brought back, such as my old favorite royal amethyst. And then there are the newcomers that I am just getting acquainted with, like poppy. Who wouldn't like a color named "poppy"?
The palette I found at Cheap Joe's during a sidewalk sale. It was a real bargain, too good to pass up. The paints are all American Journey. A brand I am happy to stick with for now. My palette does have more wells for color, so my collection of watercolors may grow. Finding new favorites is always fun.

Lovely painting, and I have to agree - who wouldn't love a color called "Poppy".

Love the palette and I always love your paintings, Ann. I'm itching for some new tubes of watercolor myself.

Ann this watercolor is certainly your colors. Isn't Cheap Joe's the best. I have a Christmas gift card from hubby that I am planning on using this week-end. I have used American Journey watercolors as well and find them to be great.

Oooh, I'd try a fun color like Poppy too! It's very fun to say.
