I created a 6 set chart in watercolors.

Then found a few sets that appealed to me the most.


This triad with the Daniel Smith Moonglow, the cobalt teal (green blue) and the golden warm ochre – has a lovely tropical and floral feel to it I quite enjoy.


Creating these charts and then grouping into sets, Its a good way to inspire the imagination!



Definitely not hard.

Certainly not time consuming.

But has great artistic benefits.
