Painting with Primary Colors

Linda Thorson and Dana Kepfer

Linda and Dana were ready at 9:00, we are doing a 3 day workshop starting in watercolor. After explaining the real Color Wheel we painted a watercolor color wheel and neutral gray with three primary colors, Daniel Smith Indian Yellow PY108 anthrapyrimidine yellow, D.S. Quinacridone Magenta PV202 Sennelier Quinacridone Red PR122 (actual Quinacridone Magenta), and D.S. Phthalo Blue PB15:3.
Also this set of primaries, D.S New Gamboge a nickel dioxine PY153, Graham's gamboge PY110 Isoindolinone yellow, Grumbacher Thalo Crimson PV19 (the warmest magenta Quinacridone and Grumbacher Thalo Blue PB15.

Oil Paints,
Old Holland Indian Yellow Orange-side PY153
Daniel Smith Quinacridone Magenta PR122,
Grumbacher Thalo Blue, cyan PB15

Water Colors,
Daniel Smith New Gamboge, PY153 Nickel Dioxine Indian Yellow O/s pigment.
Daniel Smith Quinacridone Magenta PV202 is more to the cyan side.
I don't know why D.S. won't use the most stable and magenta color matching pigment PR122 (36RCW#13) in their watercolors, other suppliers do. Is it because they have to pay to use Sennelier's color PR122 and that yanks their chain?
Grumbacher Thalo Crimson PV19 is more to the warm side and less permanent.
Grumbacher Thalo Blue PB15.3
