For last night’s #colour_collective colour Phthalo Blue another beach scene – but at night and around a campfire:

This artwork can be purchased as print and more at my Society6 store

Phthalo_BlueUsually, I mix colours using Cyan, Lemon Yellow and Magenta.

This time, I actually had Phthalo Blue available as such.

However, when I looked at what came out of the Phthalo Blue tube, it did not really look like the digital reference. I felt that the contents of the Ultramarine Blue tube resembled the digital reference much more.

Nonetheless, I was sticking to Phthalo Blue and in those few locations where water and pigment gathered together on paper in greater intensity, the digital reference and the watercolour Phthalo Blue I used drew near in likeness.


Next week’s colour for #colour_collective is Duck Egg Green. Hm, let’s see if I’ll manage to create and illustration without ducks or eggs.

Any theme, any medium, anyone. Post together Fri 19:30 GMT+1. Just use the #colour_collective hashtag on Twitter.

For more information see @Clr_Collective and @PennyNevilleLee (#colour_collective creator) and do check out the wonderful illustrations that were posted so far.

Wishing all a lovely weekend!
