96: The Unlimited Art of the Limited Palette with Hazel Soan

Mike talks about a subject he rarely draws or paints and then practices some urban sketching. Hazel Soan stops by to talk about her new book “Art of the Limited Palette: A Step-By-Step Practical Watercolour Guide.” Hazel shares her start in finding the time and light to create. She shares her passion and knowledge of watercolor, speaking to warm and cool colors, triads, and staining versus granulating colors. Her homework will help you discover something lost or forgotten.
