Color charts

First thing I did after Kathleen's workshop was to work on some color charts.  I love the idea of a limited palette, but I also love the process I used with Qiang Huang  and Nancy Medina – starting with transparent paints for the foundation and shadows.  And I didn’t get satisfactory purples from the perm red and ultramarine blue.  So, I was looking for a couple of additions.  I was also finally going to look at several different brands of the same paint color; and do a study of the alizarin and other blue-reds colors to see which were closest to alizarin.   Now that I’ve chosen to add Indian Yellow, Transox Red and Alizarin, it’ll be interesting to see if I use them!
