    I’ve been busy with a local class and Kateri Ewing’s Craftsy Class–Startup Library: Painting with Watercolors. While she uses a split primary palette +3 additional colors…I decided to take all the colors I had, and liked, from previous instructors to create this color chart.
    Completed watercolor mixing chart. What I learned from doing this.
    • The stair step chart has become my preferred means of charting various mixes of watercolors. @scratchmadejournal.com/guides-and-printables
    • I have found similar color mixes on this chart, helpful in choosing my pigments.
    • Go by pigment code because some are given different color names by different brands and color appearance varies little to none, unless a second pigment color is added. (e.g. PR101 light red, mars brown, venetian red, indian red, burnt sienna, sepia) @handprint.com/HP/WCL/watere.html#PR101
    • Don’t let the cat in…even if she wishes to be the studio cat.
    • Out of tube greens are not natural and must be mixed with an earth yellow, or most any blue to look from nature.
    • Single Pigment Quinacridone Gold (PO49), now no longer available, appears to be a brighter version of Yellow Ochre (PY43).
    • I could probably go without the buff titanium, and be a traditionalist…use the white of my paper and tint the colors lighter using appropriate water to paint ratio.
    Next step, narrowing my palette. colorchart
