I really love this bluish grey contrasted with so varied colours of skin.
I'd never guess to use Quinacridine Rose to use on skin, it's so vibrant colour and so hard to use! But it looks fantastic here!

I really like how you painted the girl, all these proportions, shades, left white spaces on skin... I simply love this artwork!

Sorry for the much too late reply! Haven't been on DA for quite a while.
Thank you so much for your very kind comment.:heart:
Yes, Quin Rose is a surprisingly versatile colour that goes well in many mixes. :D When one is limited to only three primaries, one somehow finds ways to make them work.
So very glad you enjoyed this watercolour, I really like painting with that limited palette. Maybe you would enjoy giving it a try, too. :D

You are so kind, thank you! :D

You know, I do love mixing greys. They're my favourites to mix, oddly enough, because I don't even like grey in RL, haha.
