Day 4 in my 10-day watercolor a day journal. I’ve realized that I don’t really like the magentas.
Quinacridone Rose (more a cool red, but I still lump it in with the magentas because of the characteristics), Alizarin Crimson, Magenta — that whole range of powerful, staining red to magenta colors. They’re beautiful colors, but mistakes are hard to fix, and it is so easy to go wrong with them. I find myself avoiding them, which is probably a good reason to start using them more. You never learn to use something by NOT using it!
