And on to the next Quinacridone - Quinacridone Purple this week.
Last year while travelling in South Africa, I bought a different kind of sponge for painting - a loofah. I was curious about what sort of marks it would make. It was very disappointing that I managed to leave it out of my bag when I packed, but Lori brought it with her when she came in December so I thought I'd do a sponge wash with it for the last week of January.

I was looking for a good juicy dark colour so chose Pthalo Blue to mix with the Quinacridone Purple - being two transparents, both with good intensity.
