Quinacridone experiments

I wasn’t sure what to do for the letter Q, then in the shower, it hit me. Quinacridone! πŸ˜€

I wasn’t quite as excited with the results of my color mixing quin red with quin gold and also with ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, etc. All of the greens I got with all the different blues mixed with quin gold look suspiciously similar…..not sure what that’s about.

I kind of rushed this post as I had a full day of “shoulds” and “had to”s and so today will be ….. a day of art, and rest. Thankfully. And I wish the same for all of you today. Do something for you, please. If you don’t fill up your peace tank, no one else will. I promise something much more interesting for tomorrow!Β  I’m already most of the way finished with it.Β Β  Creativity & peace to you, today and every day!Β  πŸ˜€

      1. PS Jill – it’s been 13 days straight of art journaling and I totally love! Thanks so much, you may have changed my life with this. I’m totally hooked and looking forward to a row of these journals on a shelf years from now…..of my journey. Can’t thank you enough! ❀

        Also I def think that quin rose was part of that color you asked about, since I was trying to use the quin colors. (Oh, my memory blows)


  1. The differences are subtle in the greens but they’re there. I love the blue red purple pink. It’s my favourite colour. lol. Okay, that’s it. I have got to start experimenting with water colours. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I like the transparency of the quinacridone pigments. Quin. gold is one of my favorites, and I’ve recently been experimenting with Quin. magenta.
    Love the way you’ve let the pigments mingle on the paper.
