|From L-R, Ultramarine, Violet, Magenta, Crimson, Azo Gold, Cad Yellow Med|
I decided to do some paint swatches to get a feel for the colours. They are all quite transparent, some more so than others, particularly the ultramarines. This becomes more evident in the second row, where I have added some Open medium and water to thin them.
On the third row, I increased their opacity by adding white, while that works, it does lessen the intensity of the colours.
On the fourth row, I added some ultramarine blue to each colour, which results in some lovely purples and greens.
Finally, I thought I would add some yellow to the original colours, which has resulted in a warm palette of oranges and greens.
I intend to get some more colours when I next place an order with the supplier. I can see I would benefit from a cooler blue, a cerulean would be good and maybe a cooler yellow.
It is fun and useful, to do swatches when you get new paints, it helps to familiarise yourself with them.
