On the easel, spring flowers. A bit of brightness on a drab day. For the cornflowers, I used a mix of Ultramarine, Cobalt and a touch of Cerulean blue mixed with white. I also found tubes of Cadmium Yellow and Red (the real stuff that carries a cancer warning for inhalation), as well as an unusual ultramarine yellow amongst the remnants of the paints from the UK. My easel and seating are all at the wrong height for each other, which means after a few days of painting, my shoulder and neck muscles are all in spasm. A real nuisance, as this simple easel doesn't allow for a lot of control.
