Colors on my palette

Tiny dishes on my palette filled with a rainbow of colors that I meticulously mixed; arranged like a row of flowers that I’ll use to paint her portrait. Cadmium yellow for her hair; white and yellow ochre create her flesh tone; perhaps if I dare a dab of cadmium red. Cadmium deep red for her lips; perhaps a lighter shade instead. Cerulean blue for her eyes; and like a statue she will pose while my paint laden bristles flow.
