Watercolor and Gouache

Phthalo Blue (Green Shade), Quinacridone Magenta, and Hansa Yellow Medium.
Holbein makes a kit of primary colors in gouache.
Below is a picture of the painting in progress. The weird blue cup is the Faber and Castell CLIC & GO Water Cup. I think it's made for kids but it works great for painting on location. The rim is scalloped which allows you to rest your brushes across the top of it without having them roll off. I attached the cup to the board with velcro. The sides are made of a flexible silicone so it collapses down to about an inch and half tall and it can fit into a large pocket. Cargo shorts are great for painting outdoors during the summer months because I can fit my painting supplies and a small camera into the extra pockets.
