Green and Grey
8x10 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. In this piece, I smudged the pastel for a softer technique. These colors are interesting I think. The grey and the blue green are not often seen together. I also used subtle colors like aqua, pink and mauve. It is very easy to use the same colors over and over again, so I think it is important to try different combinations and see what happens!
