Ok the technicolor bit is a lie.
So these new watercolors are lovely in that they are so vibrant and bright. But I am experimenting with ways to knock their intensity down since the vibrancies all start battling each other for attention in a piece. Even when I mix a grey, it's a very intense grey. So I'm adding little bits of gouache to them to try to fade them out a bit. It seems to be working ok so far.
Ruined two color studies just playing round with it for my final Jack and the Beanstalk illustration. Going to do a few more tonight hopefully with better results!
