Two colors directly opposite one another on the color wheel. When placed next to one another, complementary colors are intensified and often appear to vibrate. When mixed, brown or gray is created. Red and green, blue and orange, and yellow and violet have the greatest degree of contrast. Red-violet and yellow-green, red-orange and blue-green, and yellow-orange and blue-violet are also complementary colors
So, as a "plein artist", what do you need to carry? At first, I thought I would carry the basics, first I decorated a plastic box to keep all my Peerless watercolors dry.
All my Peerless colors are organized, labeled and sampled with a sheet of plastic for protection between each layer.
Then I thought I only needed a few water brushes and a pencil and I would be set. Tucked it all into this little bag.
But then when I used it one day while out with a friend, I found I was using up most of the table space with everything spread out. I also found myself wishing I had this or that and taking them home to finish up later when I had the rest of my stuff to play with.
That's when I remembered I had this little caddy that I use to carry around with me when I went to scrapbooking crops! So now I have a tray to carry all my Twinkling H20's and my Lindy's Magicals...
Even my TH spritzer tool to get all those nifty little dots I love so much! And my gelatos too, now I might actually use them more...
Not only my brushes and pencils but my watercolor pencils...yay!
And a pocket on the front for my keys and money!
OK, so now it weighs a ton, but who cares? It's not like I'm going hiking with it and I know have a lot more to play with with when I am out and about! I can even carry my watercolor crayons with me!
I am so ready for my next plein air adventure!!
