Adding Cadmium Yellow Light to each of the colours
does what you'd expect: it gives a sunnier, summer glow to the colours.
I take a page of the sketchbook for each of the colours; it might
be a useful reference to have around. And I need the practice in
applying washes, as you can see.
Carmine Light gives a plummy look to the colour
range. My previous watercolours included Alizarin Crimson
and Permanent Rose. In his set Madder Lake
Light and carmine take their place.
These are Russian-made colours and I guess that what they refer
to as English Red is what we would call Venetian
Red. I try mixing this set of swatches in more diluted
form and attempt to do a graded wash of each, adding more water
as I go, because I imagine that variations on this colour would
be useful in portraits and figure drawing.
