more watercolors

Today I was going to tidy up the studio, but in the process I found some very soft and creamy, raw, cotton rag paper from I don't know where (no watermark). So I am working instead which is better. First I draw with graphite and then I smear some paint around, sticking to a limited palette of three colors: yellow ochre, burnt sienna, and indigo blue. This is almost the Velasquez palette which would have ultramarine blue instead of indigo.
