Day 26: 30-n-30

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.
