Okay, here we are, the first week has passed.
I apologize because I'm up to date with my challenges, but I'm late with the publication and analysis of triads used and watercolors completed.
So for the 9th day, I used this triad of opaque secondary colors.
I knew in advance that it was a triad to go straight into the wall ... And even more, the shades have a very low value and are very "Pastel" like ...
This triad is composed of:
- Yellow Naples: PW4 + PY97 + PR101
- Dark Purple Cabalt: PV14
- Hooker Green: PG36 + PY3 + PO49
All paintings are from Daniel Smith
When setting the palette and creating a mix chart, I noticed that Hooker's green was splitting apart and I think the PG36 pigment that made it would float above the mixture, leaving a muddy greenish bottom.
On the other hand, it takes a good amount of cobalt violet because it is very clear and hard to get a little depth, so do not go smoothly.
This violet has, like many compositions with cobalt, a nice granulation. The Naples yellow is mainly composed of white, which makes it chalky and difficult to handle in mixtures.
Here is the color chart made with this triad:
As a subject, I looked for a very pastel image and I remembered a landscape of wood with a deer coming to drink in a pond, at dawn.
The difficulty was to obtain shades other than green, pale yellow or purple. Very difficult to handle, but I managed.
It's up to you to decide if it's successful as a sketch.
After this risky triad, I find, for the next triad, colors closer to a normal triad with primaries.
I think I will more easily find a subject. See you later for the tenth and thank you for your interest and testimonials.
