Gouache Color Mixes: Cadmium Red (PR108) M. Graham

Note: I didn’t start mixing my colors with Zinc White yet, which is why that line is blank. This post will be updated when I do.
Note: Titanium White is much warmer than shown here, it only looks blue because I had leftover blue paint on my brushes when mixing and it appeared that way. It is warmer and looks a bit more orange.

Hello everyone, I did a few gouache color mixing charts over the past several weeks so that I can become more familiar with my paints.
Cadmium Red is very much an intensely saturated orange red. It has high tinting strength and is versatile in making various oranges and being mixed with the earth colors.

My book is out! It compiles my drawings and journals from when I went to Seattle in April. Here is a link to the book or more information at my blog post here.
