Whilst mixing the skin tones on my dirty palette which I don't always clean because sometimes you can re wet the watercolours and use them. I made up my reds when finished I accidentally used some of an orange from a previous mixing session and it worked wonderfully! Now, if only I could remember how I made that colour! It's quite different from working with my usual acrylic where I just squeezed my desired colour from a tube! This is good for me because my knowledge of mixing colours is very basic.
OUR DAY TRIP
Here are the photos of yesterday's accidental day trip. We actually had planned to go to Rome but I wasn't feeling well for the last two days accompanied by a dull headache. At 11 o clock I decided not to waste such a beautiful day. It was not too hot and partly cloudy. We headed off into the city for some light shopping and decided to visit an old town on our way back. I pointed to a large building on a mount in the far distance that I've passed many times and asked what it was. It was the old Casamari Abbey inhabited by monks and tourists are welcome. So, I said 'LET'S GO THERE!!'
When we arrived a wedding had just finished and another was about to start when we left.
A confession box. I think that these things look scary or maybe it comes from instilled fear! There was another ,larger one on the other side bur personally I .don't think that two is enough these days ;)
This was in the car park and water tasted quite lovely actually!
