Watercolour Charts


I’ve been making a few charts of the watercolour paints I have.  (I cannot make my Photoshop Elements work, so I used iPhoto – I’m not familiar with iPhoto so these photos look too dark…)



first I made a mixing chart of 17 colours of Windsor & Newton – but it was so tedious!  I chose too many colours for the size of the paper, each square is too small to get the real feel of each colour.



I enjoyed making these charts, though – much easier and more fun.  The top is Windsor and Newton’s and the bottom is Holbain’s.





Then I made this chart with 3 different yellow and 6 different blue of Winsor & Newton.  With just 9 colours you can make endless numbers of different colours.  Although it’s not a surprise theoretically, it still surprises you when you actually see all the different colours.




I want to make 6 colour wheel but I don’t have all the right 6 colours so I’m waiting for some to be delivered.
