Step 1 for painting a glazed grid

Glazed color grid: something for your reference wall

Creating a glaze grid is a watercolor technique for seeing how the colors you have interact with each other.

I decided to use 9 bright colors: Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Dioxazine Purple, Pthalocyanine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Sap Green, and Pthalocyanine Green.

I drew a 9 x 9 grid of 1/2″ bands. (You can skip the drawing step if you can paint a straight line without a problem)

You should use your own palette of colors arranged correspondently.
