To master color, what I do…. is Experiment.
Master Color, Watercolors
Alot of it.
But, it is so fun.
It Can be super fast, like this one! 5 Minutes.
And you learn so much from every practice you do.
I find that setting aside the 5 minutes, instead of an hour or two, really helps.
I always know that I can try to squeeze those 5 minutes in.
And, if I do have an hour or two? I’ll take them!
Daniel Smith watercolors Indanthrone blue pb60 and Daniel Smith primatek Purpurite …for that purple and textured effect.
Rekab 320s #2 watercolor brush
The paints easily diluted and mixed together.
The granulation effect was quite responsive.
The mixes came out, deliberately, as 1. Dark 2. Mid 3. Lighter Tone
It was easy to create warmer and cooler mixes. Which would of course, help in a painting to create depth and perspective.
I found myself quite pleased with the results, especially the textural effects.
I hadn’t Thought of putting these two paints together before.
Glad I did, to show you on a Silly Saturday!
