Blogging A to Z Challenge - E is for Emerald

Welcome back to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge 2016!  This will be interesting and fun trying to interpret healing crystals and gemstones from Amethyst to Zircon with watercolors and create a neat sketchbook.

E is for Emerald

Emerald is associated with Mercury and the astrological sign of Cancer.   The harmonious emerald can help with balance, vision and headaches.

Palette Paints - Winsor Newton Viridian was perfect creating this emerald.  It is another one of my go-to colors.  Combine with Alizarin for a really nice black.  I also dropped in some Cobalt Turquoise.  If you are looking to create beautiful beachy water, try adding some of this to your bag of colors.

Love, love your sketches, and the way you're interpreting the healing crystals.
