Vandy Massey - Week #3

The Quinacridone journey continues this week with Quinacridone Violet. With very few exceptions, the quinacridones are single pigment watercolours which makes them clear and crisp on the paper.

Quinacridone Violet is a glorious rich colour. Although I've not covered it here, this colour makes beautiful dark purples when mixed with transparent blues

I decided to combine the Quinacridone golds with the Violet in my wash for the week.
