Not the most exciting of pictures but you will learn a lot
Here you will use Magenta, Cyan, Yellow and some black.
With the aid of screen printing techniques, years ago, printers were able to produce all the colours for printed matter. Some of you may already be familiar with these colours depending on the type of printer you use at home. But have you ever thought about painting with them in watercolour?
It is the ultimate colour mixing process and will set you up for any other colour mixing you will want to do.
This watercolour painting will also help you to look analytically at a view and see how to enhance it to make it more interesting to the viewer, and by using such a limited palette you will become more aware of the importance of colour values.
So have a go, share your results and comments and enjoy your painting.
