Add a contemporary flair to your work by supplementing the traditional watercolor palette with some richer darks, brighter brights, and a couple of opaques, which are great for adding highlights. These are the colors I most often end up lending to my students to achieve a desired effect when the standard palette falls short. Enjoy!
Tip: Use opaques thick, right out of the tube for adding highlights. They will be milky and semi-transparent if you water them down.
