What to do when you need color

...start with red. Busy day yesterday and before I knew it, it was time to go to our Friday afternoon painting group. I wanted to work on UArt but prefer working on a colored ground. What to do? Taped a piece of 400 grit UArt to Gatorboard and sprayed it with alcohol. Found an old bottle of Dr. Ph. Martin's HYDRUS Fine Art Watercolor 15H Permanent Red and dropped a little color around on the surface. Took this photo. Smeared the color around with my gloved finger and let it dry. Forgot to take another photo. Packed up and headed off to paint.

Good day of painting with other artists of all levels, all mediums. If you are in the area, join us Fridays, 1 PM, Maple Valley Community Center.
