Too tired to paint...

I felt shockingly tired today. So instead of painting more of the commission, I read more of Hazel Soan's "10-Minute Watercolours" and made lots of notes about which colours she recommends putting in a palette. She says "you only need three colours"; but she used 33 in the book!! I found 14 colours that she said were useful - 9 primary colours and ones for "greys and darks". A bit more than three! :o)
