New mixes

In this painting I am trying out some new mixes, using hookers green and pyrole red to make the browns and darks. I have pyrole red in my palette but don’t use it often. Now that I’ve added hookers green I am finding it more useful. Other colors are nickel azo yellow and burnt sienna with a little magenta and ultramarine. 

This is somewhat atypical of my recent paintings, as this is more fluid and transparent than I have been used to, but it’s nice to do things a little differently. This feels a little more like a normal watercolor. Then again, it’s early and there’s still time to give it texture at the end.
