Starting to really enjoy my very limited palette of watercolours. It started with Jane Blundell’s recommendation for four great colours: Hansa Yellow Medium, Qunacridone Magenta, Phthalo Blue RS, and Transparent Pyrrol Orange. But I found they weren’t quite there, so have added two others – Cerulean Blue and Yellow Ochre. These add a little more softness and subtlety to the range.
With these six colours I’m really starting to get the mixes I want – bright, transparent, lime greens to soft greens, huge range of reds, oranges, pinks – and a better range of blues now I’ve added Cerulean.
