Yesterday evening, the postman delivered a new tube of titanium white that I had ordered from Utrecht Art Supply. When I unscrewed the cap, I was amazed to find it so creamy and smooth, like soft butter---not at all like my old stuff. I couldn't wait to try it today, so I set aside a larger painting I have been working on and did this flower study. What a joy! I have never worked with such a luscious white.
