Limited Primary / Secondary Colors Watercolor Palette

My experiments using only primary and secondary colors (full saturation) often leave me with a jarring, smack in the face, feelings.  I wanted to take a break from oil and splash something simple in watercolor.  The water dilution alters the value immediately….. defeating the purpose of the experiment but giving me a little breathing room.

This morning’s experiments with pastel on the front porch on the gray, rainy day that it is resulted in two more jarring landscapes.  The good news is that I had a great time doing them and……. I learned a lot.  I’ll post them…. maybe ….. at another time.
