Painting on Location

Kihei W/C Workshop #1

Painting with the Primary Colors

This was the January 22nd and 23rd, 2004 watercolor workshop with Don Jusko.
First we all made 2 color wheels with only three colors.
One with a warm magenta PV19 and one with a cool magenta PR122,
both with cyan PB15 and Indian Yellow Nickel Complex PY108.
The warm magenta makes reds and oranges, the cool makes better blues.
Today, 8-27-10 there is an Opera color magenta PR122+BV10 that makes all color brillantly but is a little fugitive.
Here is a page with images of all the transparent yellow colors. By starting with dry pigments you can make any media.

Daniel Smith New Gamboge PY153 Nickel Dioxine is the best Indian Yellow O/s pigment.
Daniel Smith Quinacridone Magenta PV202 is more to the cyan side.
