Byron Smith mixes a yellow tint onto his pallet at Orr Street Studios. Smith worked with oils on Saturday, but his passion lately has been watercolor. “It’s translucent and hard to control, that’s what I like about it. I let it do what it does, and I don’t try to control it, I work with it,” Smith said.
