Watercolour Swatches

I am addicted to swatches, I’m very boring.  Every time I get a new arty thing, I swatch it.  It may look boring, but believe me, it’s very helpful in the long run. 🙂 I definitely recommend it.  If you have a canvas or paper you habitually use, one swatch for each medium should be enough to give you a good guide to your colours at a glance, when planning a picture or in the middle of one.  In my case, I do all my swatches on Bristol Board, and test-swatch individual colours on other paper as I go along.
