I use FC watercolor pencils. I want to get realistic looking grades of color between parts of the picture, so that sails on ships have realistic changes. I have watched the VT videos Mark discusses but every time, he just says which color he switches to to make the change to a darker blend. But I don’t have those pencils that he has.
How do I choose which ones to use? I could just trial an error the sketches and wait until I get the version I like, then use that combination on the final workpiece (and I am sure with experience, it will all become natural for me), but I would like to be able to choose the right color or at least a close one from the get-go. Is there a Rule of Thumb for seeing the blue shade in the pink donut? (I’m watching the pink donut video right now).
Any advice or experiences in this are welcome.
