Day 4 of 30

Got a new pigment to play with.  It is Rembrandt Phthalo Green Blue.  I love turquoise and aqua so I wanted to play with this color.  All of the phthalo colors are very powerful colors and need to be used sparingly as their tinting strength is very high.  However, I love the cool greens next to the pinks of the rose and because it is so strong it is very economical and makes really pretty aqua.  Sometimes I added a touch of Transparent Yellow Oxide to neutralize the intensity and lean it a touch more yellow.  Definitely a keeper!
