Mixing Exercise 3

Exercise 3 - Mid-intensity violets with violet-red and green-blue. Permanent Rose and Cerulean Blue.

These are two gorgeous colors! And don't they make beautiful children?

Although we're still only dealing with only one pigment leaning to the violet side, these particular pigments left those previous two exercises looking positively blah.

Once again we notice the Cerulean Blue dropping out of mix and collecting in puddles. I don't see this behavior in the book photos and I think it may be that the author's work is on cold-pressed paper. All my work is on hot-pressed. Perhaps the smooth finish of the HP allows for that pigment particle migration whereas the CP allows those particles to settle into the paper's rougher surfaces. You know, like little hills and valleys instead of parking lots.
