8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas
This weekend, I taught at two-day oil painting workshop called "The Primary Palette," painting still lives using a three-color palette. Color choice is up to each artist - any red, yellow, and blue combo they like.
I chose Cadmium red light, Azo yellow, and a new-to-me color, Maya Blue, by Rublev paint.
Painting with a palette like this is a great way to get acquainted with new-to-you colors.
Above, you can see my color wheel - beautiful oranges and greens, very dull (but beautiful) violets. That's the result of a yellowish red combined with a muted blue - and my demos of the awesome "Stroke Economy" exercise. A workshop favorite!
And here is some of my students' work. Fabulous!
