Colour matching Gouache studies (3.1) Part Three

The neutral square was probably a bit too even for this exercise, but I did include a couple of washes of different colours to try and add subtle depth and variation. I was pleased that my partner thought I had just painted straight over the fabric square 🙂

Only a small number of testers this time. Really was only shades of one colour used and most of the decision was made on the palette. It was quite difficult to get the subtle colour right but I was happy. This is a piece of raw silk that I had brought with me for dyeing. Who knew it had so much colour in it?
