Watercolor on paper, 5″ x 3.25″
I was trying to make a dark neutral yesterday with a mix of burnt sienna dark and a variety of cerulean blue. To test it out I made this sketch. The paint can be used darker than this, though it’s not quite dark enough to be black. The warmer color in the sky is a light wash of the unmixed burnt sienna dark glazed over a very thin wash of the mix.
