Inspired by some unique colors I have in colored pencil, I explored various mixes of brown and purple watercolor paints I had on hand.
- Warm Sepia, Jackson’s
- Raw Umber, Holbein
- Sepia, Daniel Smith
- Quinacridone Purple Blue, Van Gogh
- Helios Purple, Sennelier
- Quinacridone Burnt Scarlet, Daniel Smith
First I created a mixing chart (shown above) to determine which paints I wanted to work with, then I explored graduated mixes of each pair (shown below).
There are so many beautiful combinations, it’s a challenge to determine what to focus on. Stay tuned, there’s more to come.
