I seem to have accumulated a lot of watercolour reds of various brands so I decided to try and put them all together to see how they compared. I don't think I really discovered much but I had fun.

It is good!
What I like is that you started with an 'assignment' and see where it brings you.  I have a friend who say things like "this month I only use 2 complementary colors plus B and W",  "this month I only use blue as my main colour", "this month I only use harmonized colors with red, etc.
Cheers, Annie

This turned out quite well didn't it?  O0   This is a great way to learn a lot about glazing as well.
Cheers, Val

Linley,

What a fun way to "chart" your colors.  Way more exciting than square boxes.

Good for you!  Thanks for sharing it with us.

Why,  :thankyou: All. I'm glad you like it. I've told myself to try it with my blues and my yellows etc, but I need a round-to-it.

Trev... browns are tricky.... So far I've stuck to earth browns and attempting to mix them with my vast selection of reds and a few greens.  A collection of browns sounds enticing.... Hmmmmm..... :painting:
