This combination makes beautiful purples, as you can see, but with these colours the oranges are dull and the greens useful but neutralised. DS Quin Magenta PR202 is not as clean for mixing as the W & N PR122 colour, though it has a better lightfast rating. So what is the perfect trio of watercolours?
|Quinacridone Magenta, Ultramarine and Quinacridone Gold|
|Quinacridone gold, Ultramarine and Permanent Red Deep|
|Permanent Red Deep, Hansa Yellow Medium and Phthalo Blue (R.S.)|
