Color Wheel Trio

Color Wheel Trio - student project

I attempted to create color wheels using a few QOR and DS yellows, reds/magentas, and blues I had on hand.  I quickly learned the lessons that warms + warms or cools + cools don't make the best violets.  At any rate, I am thankful for this reminder.  

I also had a difficult time with the color separating on the paper after mixing.  I am thinking it may be the paper?  I used Grumbacher 140lb cold press paper for this project.  I thought it was 100% cotton, but perhaps not?  It feels like there is a coating on it, and it isn't as toothy as a paper that I know is 100% cotton.

Denise, I enjoyed your instruction and look forward to taking more of your classes!
