Mis?Adventures in Watercolor: Circle Triad Orange, Violet & Blue


I’ve been playing with Orange, Violet and Blue triads and had some success with Chrome Orange, Quinacridone Violet, and Ultramarine Blue.  But I couldn’t get the greens I wanted, so I decided to try Phthalo Blue (red shade) instead.
I still don’t get the greens I want, and although the Phthalo didn’t overpower asI thought it might, if you go beyond two glazes the colors overall get ugly (see Saran Wrap experiment below).  *sigh*  More experimentation.
Actually, *not sigh*.  I enjoy experimentation, lol!
If you are wondering how I get these circles, and haven’t seen my tutorial, go here.
Colors: Chrome Orange, Quinacridone Violet, and Phthalo Blue (RS).
