Stressed that it is way more important to get the tones right than worry about the exact colour.
Toucan demo...same lesson. Stressed that it is so important to get the tones right. The exact colour simply isn't as important.
This is a painting I did years ago. Small sketches done from photos randomly put together and given a touch of watercolour. I have written down Ultramarine Blue, Windsor Red (but looks more like burnt sienna or something) and two yellows...Indian and Transparent. Limited palette is a powerful thing so long as you leave plenty of white. Makes landscapes look great. Confident.
