Shades of Yellow

Here are some more results of my colour experiments.
My cool yellow (landscape wattle) with the tiniest bit of black (landscape currawong) on the far right, with increasing amounts of the black moving towards the left. The first time I saw these olive greens coming from the addition of black and yellow I was surprised and intrigued. I'm more used to it now, but it still tickles my fancy.

The yellows look more olive green on my screen.
I like the gradations. What is your plan for all these colour gradations?

Yep, yellow plus black makes olive green! These are just colour exercises, to make me more familiar and confident with my dyes. I'll probably make another colour wheel poster for myself--can't have too many colour wheels:)
