Rose Dore is an interesting color.  One of the artists at the World Watercolor Group uses it with Cobalt Blue, Yellow Ochre and Cadmium Yellow and gets some beautiful effects.  If you mix all except the Cadmium Yellow and get just the right mix, you can get a spectacular dark, almost black.  I’ve only been able to get the right mix once so far – it’s going to take some practice.
