So I then decided to build a palette out of as many of the new colours as I could.
I ended up using 9 of them and then filling out the 24 set with some other Aquarius colours I found. Roman has very kindly sent me lots of samples over the years so I have a good collection although it is somewhat random. (ie. I don’t have the full range.)
The idea of this palette is mainly to use new colours but a few favourites (such as Potter’s Pink) managed to find their way into the set. 🙂
This palette is sitting on my desk at home (it’s too heavy for an everyday urban sketching palette) and so I haven’t used it much yet. I did use it for my recent Canowindra Revisited sketch – see here.
I’m still not sure how I will tackle testing these new colours (twenty new colours at one time is a lot!) – so I thought I would ask you…
Is there any colour you are interested in or would like me to test first?
