100416 Muted Primary mixing

Muted Primary Testing
Some one asked me what colours I used in that Baroque sketch the other day... It is based on a muted primary triad of Kate Johnson This is my exploratory mixes to work out which combination of W&N or Daniel Smith paints and the most important mix that I am after is a good neutral brown, warm grey and neutral grey. I found it hard to get a perfect mix (like I get with W&N French Ultramarine and Burnt Sienna)
In the end I am using all Daniel Smith Quin Gold, Quin Burnt Scarlet and Indanthrene Blue – so much more vibrant colours than Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna and French Ultramarine.
