For this sketch, I use the modern triad with colors from Winsor & Newton.
I use tube paints and the paint is fresh, out of the tube.
And like all these studies, I limit myself to a paint maximum 1 hours, selection of the material and set up included.
The colors used are:
Transparent Yellow: PY150
Red Winsor: PR254
Indanthrene Blue: PB60
The mixture of Indanthrone blue (neutral slightly warm) and transparent yellow (warm) gives greens that are a little more nuanced than with the triad n ° 1 (Traditional) but still a little dull varying from olive green to a Hooker's green, but a little toned down, and more yellow than with the first triad.
Here is a small study of a vase with flowers in a modern style. I especially wanted to see the vibrancy that this triad can bring.
Here not too much glazing, some attempts to open white and working mostly in the wet. I observe that by mixing the 3 colors, we also get beautiful blacks.
I would have liked to get more shades of blue for the flowers, but it is impossible to achieve this color with a blue Indanthrène and a hot yellow, there I needed a yellow version. This demonstrates the limit of the triads if one wants to obtain almost all the colors with mixtures.
With 6 primary colors, a cold version and a hot primary, we can get closer. You can contact me by the contact of this blog or by my facebook page All about watercolour, tests, brands, techniques (ask to be admitted, because it is a closed group)
