Having done that it was time to try them out in a sketch. The late afternoon light on the hillside across the way as viewed from my dining table was perfect for playing with those vibrant and earthy Quinacridone colors. Again, I only added Ultramarine Blue to the mix for the greens and blue sky.
I currently have only one quinacridone in my palette, Quin Gold, which you can see I checked off on the chart. Having tried these samples I would now like to add one or two more, perhaps to replace current colors in my palette. The violets and reds are lovely, but I really do like the Sienna and Gold Deep for the mixing possibilities.
