Color Consistency

The Atlantic Ocean series has— so far, anyway— three different color treatments. There are four paintings in each "phase;" Dark Blue, Turquoise, and Dawn. The set that I'm working on now is the third phase, the dawn colors. There's a lot of pink, pale blue, and pale yellow in the set than in the other color phases, and there's also some deep, greyed blue-green. I'm using something like half a dozen blues, two yellows, and two radiant pinks. Plus a bit of Payne's Gray. I've got the second painting in the Dawn phase set up nearby so I can check to make sure the paintings are consistent in their color treatments.

I'm not sure what the final set of four will look like, as far as the color palette goes. Maybe greyish?
