CREATE your Own Reference Book!
Developing an easy-to-use personal reference guide of your watercolors is always a good idea, and the 66 dot Try-It Color Sheet is a great way to get started!
- Cut the 66 Try-It Color Sheet into individual reference tabs so that each of the 66 watercolor dots are on their own rectangle.
- Be sure to preserve the information (watercolor name, series number, sku number, and color information) printed on the paper for each color.
- Using sheets of watercolor paper or pages in a Watercolor Journal, staple each reference rectangle onto a page.
You could use A4 sheets and punch holes so that they could be inserted into a binder later.
- Dip your brush into water, then onto the watercolor dot on the stapled Reference rectangle.
- Take up the pigment and paint it out on your Reference Book page.
- Brush out the released pigment on the paper, experimenting with pigment density and transparency/granulation.
- You can then write in notes about the color, such as Tips and Tricks about Wet onto Wet/Dry Paper Techniques.
Create Mixing References too - combinations that you want to remember and use later.
