Sketchcrawl in Kansas City

On Saturday we drove to Kansas City, meeting friends for a sketchcrawl at the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center. Lots of areas to sketch, inside and out, but the wind still has a cold nip to it. (Goodness! They are predicting snow again in parts of Kansas this week! Will Spring ever get here?) This tableau was set up inside.

After doing very little sketching for over three weeks, I played a bit with my newest palette to get back into it. At first, I had filled this palette with as many colors as would fit --- now I've reduced them to some essential pigments, leaving room for some brushes. Surprisingly, my fat # 12 travel brush fits!


  1. Beautiful! I know what you mean about spring!
    Nice new palette. What do you consider your essential pigments?

  2. LOVE this, Vicky! Thank you for sharing...and I'm with Barbara, what's in the latest palette!?

  3. LOL -- My "essentials" seem to change every other month! But the current choices in this altered "16 half-pan palette" are as follows:

    1st row: permanent rose (or quinacridone red), pyrroll scarlet (or cadmium scarlet), translucent orange, new gamboge, quinacridone gold, hansa yellow light, and phthalo green (used only in mixes).

    2nd row: manganese blue hue (or cerulean blue), phthalo blue, ultramarine blue, monte amiata natural sienna, quinacridone burnt orange, and sepia.
