Creating a Color Sketch with Dyes on Paper for my Silk Painting

Today I mixed up some dyes and painted a small color sketch to plan out the colors I will be using on my current silk painting. The photo above shows my original large sketch and the smaller color sketch that I created today. I had planned to do a couple of versions but I was so happy with the first one that I am going to use it as my guide. This sketch was created with dyes on cheap copy paper, the dyes on silk will actually respond very differently, but it gives me a guide to go by when choosing and mixing my dyes.
