I have been doing color studies to give me the ability to quickly mix the color I want. Still working on “Soul Happy” a painting from my turn at worship last month. It currently looks like this:
At the end of worship, it looked like this:
So you can see I have been working on the sky. To do this, I worked on a color study of Smalt Hue (Days 9-11)
and Manganese Blue (Days 7-8).
I am ready to rework the greens and was wondering how to use the paint on my palette. I mixed equal parts of manganese blue and cadmium yellow pale hue for my color and completed the color audition chart. Here it is:
I have a good supply of color mixing books but I haven’t learned from them as much as I have from doing my own charts. I can not recommend this experience enough. Look at these greens and I know using them will work in the painting because the same blue in the sky is in the green!
Tomorrow, I’ll post my results.
