These planets are an example of what I do, I have pages and pages of these which I can then come back to when I want to see what colours will work well for a particular piece of work...don't worry, I won't bore you with them all!!!!! These have 3 colours mixed, I do tend to use transparent paint but I still don't get mud even with opaques or semi opaques. The secret is not to fiddle with it, to let the paint and water do the work on the paper
You can try this with any colours and you will be amazed how many beautiful combinations and effects you can get with colours that would be so dull and uninteresting if you tried mixing them together in the palette.
Give it a go and you will find your work will move on to a different level!!!
Ps if you double click on the images you will be can see the colours used
