Fluid Painting in Watercolour

I always want to learn fluid and loose watercolour painting. Here I am giving it a go:

Mixing tertiary colours (Cadmium Red + blues don't necessary mix purples):

Mixing greysCadmium Red gives some green-greys; Permanet Rose has a hint of blue, gives some purple-greys; Rose Madder and Alizarin Crimson have a hint of blue and yellow, give some brown-black greys.

Colours are fascinating! For example, adding more of one colour will change the resulting colour. Under different lightings, colours look different. And our eyes can see more beautiful colours than we can mix using the colours available to us. I think learn to use colours creatively is the main purpose of these colour stuies. 

Oh, I have just read that a small group of people can see more colours, well, I mean they can see colours that are invisible to most of us!  http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20140905-the-women-with-super-human-vision

"Pōhutukawa" 

Pōhutukawa is the Maori name for Metrosideros Excelsa, also known as "New Zealand Christmas tree". It produces a brilliant display of red flowers from December through to February, which are the summer months in New Zealand!
