I'll be trying out the new Blockx pan watercolours I received for testing. This is so exciting. I've fitted 18 colours into the palette box, of which are 5 sets of primary colours + Burnt Sienna, Paynes Grey and Blockx Green.
I was trying some wet on wet techniques for the sky. It's quite challenging under the hot sun. Several areas dired faster resulting in the lighter areas.
On hindsight, I shouldn't have combined the horizon line of the building and the railings. Looks confusing now.

So far I'm leaning towards
Blockx Yellow/Primary Yellow
Gold Ochre (which is like Raw Sienna)
Pyrrolo Red/Blockx Red
Burnt Sienna Light
Blockx Yellow seems a bit cooler. Primary Yellow is slightly warmer and I feel is a colour that can be use standalone.
Yes, there are four blues. Each with their own characteristics. The two must-have blues are Primary Blue (which is like Phthalo Blue) and Ultramarine. I've recently fallen in love with Cerulean blue because of its granulation. Cobalt Blue is a nice blue also but if I really have to drop one it would be this colour.
More testing to come.
