Watercolor Play

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.

  1. I love colour charts – I am in the process of creating a whole sketchbook full of them just for my own personal reference. As you say, it’s inspiring to see all the different colours on one page…
