  • Piemontite Genuine (Daniel Smith)
  • Perylene Maroon (Daniel Smith)
  • Transparent Red Oxide (Daniel Smith)
  • Lunar Earth (Daniel Smith)
  • Light Yellow Ochre (would usually be DS but I was out so I used Colors of Nature)
  • Quinacridone Gold (Daniel Smith)
  • Green Gold (QoR)
  • Viridian (QoR)
  • Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Genuine (Daniel Smith)
  • Mayan Blue Genuine (Daniel Smith)

Here is my bonus class project showing all of the two-color combinations from this palette. The bottom triangle is the masstone of each mix, while the top half is the same mix but diluted with water.
