Switching it up

Like many of my fellow sketchers, I like to have lots of different colours to add to my sketches. Not a week goes by that I don’t swatch the colours in the palettes I’m using at the moment. The exercise is fun, beautiful to look at and helps to get me unstuck. You know what I mean.

However, every now and then, I wake up with the urge to switch it up, pare down, simplify, minimize.

Today is one of those days and the first thing on my switch-it-up list is: put away the large palettes and bring out two smaller ones.

So, after some cleaning, these two of my favourite large palettes are going in my art supply cupboard for a sabbatical.

And these two of my favourite small palettes are coming out to play:

These colours in two darling palettes are rehydrating with a few spritz of water while I write this post and they should be ready to go as soon as I’m done.

Here’s to switching things up!
