Damson Plum Handmade Watercolour
One half pan of handmade watercolour, Damson Plum.
This plum is plummy indeed. Deep and luscious, and with a fascinating colour change during the mulling process! Damson plum has quite a wide range in colour values, and shows a lovely personality even in light washes. In a juicy wash, you'll see some wonderful colour separation.
A great selection for the botanical artist, wonderful for both fruit and florals.
A little behind-the-scenes: When I was in the creative process with this colour, I had no idea what it was going to do next. What started on my slab as a rather muddy blue became a sort of denim colour... then it kept becoming more plummy with every swipe of the muller! Such a lovely surprise, I'm truly glad it turned out the way it did.
