    Watercolor for landscape...

    I was searching for a nice and easy book about watercolors for landscape painting, but the one I found used real watercolors. It was an interesting one but how can I find the digital color
    of saying: "Crimson Alizarin" or "Scarlet Lake". Not easy! And in France, we don't call the colors with the same names.

    And here is what I want to share withe you: have a look at

    This Website contains all the colors used by artists, and best of all, you can find them with the RGB values of every color.
    I was first looking for watercolors, but in my book the author used a limited pallet of 10 colors he named.
    I searched to find them all 10 in a single set and I found them in "Daler-Rowney Georgian Oil Paints".
    Yes: that is the reason why I titled "Watercolor for Landscape" else that are oil colors.
    Here is an example of use one can do with that Website to transpose your desired colors in Artrage. Hope my images are
    enough clear to understand the process.

    First the complete collection:

    and here an individual choice where you can clearly see the RGB values for that color:

    I then transposed them in Artrage using the "Precise Color Picker"...

    The Color file

    To put in your resource folder:

    Daler-Rowney Georgian Oil Paints.col

    I want to complete soon other pallets using that process, so if you are interested I will try to put them in a next post here.
    I am thinking of "Sennelier Soft Floral Pastel Paints" and also "Sennelier Soft Landscape Pastel Paints".

    Thank you very much! They all look like nice soft water colours.
    I appreciate the trouble you went through to create these.

    I shared the same book as a resource for inspiration and tehnique, but you did so much more, working and sharing the precise palette. Thank you verry much!
