PALETTE & PAINT: A Colorful Palette







I'm still doing color mixing exercisers from the 'Painting the Head in Oil' book, though it's taking me a lot longer than I expected (and I'm super keen to get into actual painting) I am learning a lot and getting used to the new palette system, and all this study can only be a good thing in terms of improvements when I do pick up the brush to make an artwork.  Gosh, with this new set up I feel rather professional and organized.  Linking with Palette & Paint (P&P), come and play along too.

    1. Katja, they are gorgeous colours, very bright even the lighter values are intense. It's going to be a great reference for future paintings. Hanging them on the wall is a great idea. Thanks.

    1. Lesley, the colour wheel is fun! learning all about colour is exciting. Do you have a colour wheel that shows you the Triad, Slit Complementary, complementary, Tetrad colours, as well as the tint tone and shade?
