I mix almost all my paints, from the tube in a pan and on and on... I could tell you maybe what exactly this color was in the beginning? but its been mixed and managed so here is this blue piece. And I am loving the contrast of the inky blacks with blue. Maybe I will move on soon? Also you will notice some deciduous trees here... its spring and all the trees here are budding out, well honestly they started about a month or more ago. Oh California... its Spring is really ever present.
