Next colour, one to go..
Put the next colour on the Oystercatchers 1 today. Went for a dark rich brown mixed down to a deep blue to give a bit of variety and suggest a blue watery shade to the puddles. Though I didn't particularly want the two smaller foreground rocks to be blue, but brown like the main rock. This lead to a couple of experimentations with over rolling the two rocks with the brown part of the graduation out of sequence with the small roller. Cheatin' a little bit, but only a little bit.
They can have a bit of a dry over the weekend and then its the black.....
