Another Pearl Ex pigment powder watercolor

5x6 this time in addition to sapphire blue and shimmer violet I mixed up some apple green which is a bright yellow green that is suited to spring foliage. I used them in a more dilute, transparent manner than the last small painting on the same 140lb French 100% rag paper. Pigma micron pen was used for pen accent work

The sapphire blue in a dilute wash is a beautiful turquoise color with nearly the same shade of blue as Daniel Smith genuine sleeping beauty turquoise watercolor paint. I am going to work up a series of small landscape paintings using the four sets of pigments that I bought on Amazon and ebay.

These are more commonly used by crafters in a thick opaque manner to do metallic backgrounds on greeting cards. The shimmer violet is a lovely color to use for boulders and cliffs as it is a light violet gray in a more dilute wash. The colors can be used in a more subtle manner than I expected and can be either opaque or transparent depending on how much you dilute them. if you like to play with mica paints in watercolor these are fun to work with.

The washes work well in this comp.
You could push the envelope a little and move toward an abstract landscape.

Reminiscent of the mountains and rivers of Guilin Province, China, Susan.
I very much like your composition and delicate colours akin to a Chinese watercolour painting.
