I don't know why I want to be able to paint bokeh effects, but I do.

I used a very small section of this lovely picture as a reference:

Snoodler, July 25 by unSpookyLaughter
Snoodler, July 25
about 5" x 7"
acrylic gouache and watercolor
wax coating
on recycled rag watercolor paper


Tried a lot of new things with this.  The paste wax removed some of the acrylic while I was buffing it.  Pity!  The wax gives such a warm glow.

A little over a year ago I started testing my paints and watercolor markers to see how they fared when exposed to the great enemy of paintings - sunlight. I hadn't planned to leave the swatches up for so long, but many of them fared very well!

The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise mine  mentions "color stabilized" stones.  I don't know what that is, but it seems that turquoise will change color.

The name of the color - this is the name the paint manufacturer gave to their paint.  Names are not regulated, and if they want to name their paint something like "Unreal Eyeballs" they can.

The pigment name - These are regulated, and are usually displayed in fine print somewhere on the tube or pan.  They are the color family and number.  For example, PV19 is Pigment Violet #19.  All paints made with PV19 will have similar working properties, but they will not be identical.

A little sun -  The section of the card with the little sun drawn on it is the section that was taped to the window.  The other half of the swatch were stuck in a photo album, stored in a dark corner under my desk.

Paint Permanence Testing Results Master PostIt seems like it would be useful to have links to specific pigments, compiled in one place.  Especially as I start rolling through more and more of the results.

I get really excited about finding happiness in mundane things and the natural world. And then I want to share that excitement with everyone.

I have too many hobbies. I am a paint maniac.
