Filled up the palette and I’m ready to paint textures and patterns of the world! I tried mixing up a deep green and brown. I ordered them. I want to get more blues. These tubes have been collected over a few years. I was about to purchase another student grade palette for the metal tin but I want to use these colors.

I can’t wait to test out these colors. I like that I have Cotman and professional colors. I was going to spend more time practicing and I will. It’s time to get mixing. It’s time to paint. This year is all about making. There are no mistakes. Only make.

Maybe I’ll paint a Peruvian rug?
