Daniel Smith Watercolor 66 Sample Chart
I decided to paint a painting of my dog Honey using the Daniel Smith Watercolor 66 Sample Chart. I used mostly the Primateks on this painting. Hematite, Piemonite, Blue Agatite, Burnt Tigers Eye, Black Tourmaline and Imperial Violet. It was very hard to get a dark enough black. No matter what I mixed together it the black was not dark. THEN it granulated. Normally I LOVE granulating but it gives a splotchy look to Honey to me. I was NOT wild about the effect.
So I decided to repaint Honey using Ivory Black and a mix Indigo, Vermilion and Burnt Umber -my normal black mix. I like the results of this one ALOT better.
How did I paint this one?? I drew her. Then I painted the dark areas with Ivory Black. I then filled in the open areas with a watery Indigo blue leaving spots of white.
Which one do you like better???
