i've been mixing up luscious darks with neutral tint. i love the tide marks made from a brush heavy with water. the neutral tint/burnt sienna mix above makes me ecstatic. it has a glow to it that i find irresistable. it's a mystery to me why many of the colors seem to glow when combined.
i think i already mentioned how i love granulating watercolors. some lovely examples below.
oops i misspelled piemontite.
jane blundell is like a watercolor scientist. you could spend hours at her blog learning about color.
i digest small bits of info at a time. look to her for highly detailed, methodical watercolor study.
anyone interested in watercolor would do well to bookmark her site.
these yellows below take on almost a metallic glow when mixed with the neutral tint. sigh.
i've taped my large watercolor palettes on the wall above my art table for easy reference. so much for punching a hole through the papers and putting them on a ring.
happy mixing playing learning exploring!
