A Challenging Study
Today's challenge was to make nine thumbnail value sketches of a photo, choose one and paint it using only three colors. My colors were quinacridone burnt orange, quinacridone gold and cobalt blue. It was difficult to get anything green with the gold and blue so everything had an earth tone. This 11x15 painting took an hour to complete and shows how sticking with only three colors creates a coordinated color scheme.
