Watercolor - Glazing Colors Exercise
This exercise shows how you can create different colors by glazing(A wash dried + B wash). My class did a little different format than I did. The approach I took was something I saw on James Gurney's blog(the creator of the Dinotopia books). His watercolor exercise is here. The diagonal colors are the pure pigments and the two sides show how the colors combine as glazes and the differences between having each color layered underneath and on top of all the other colors. Under each swatch there's a little formula telling what is there. Color A is the color underneath and color B is on top. A + B = what you see. It was great fun!!
