16 x 12- 2 hour study from life--Limited palette

 

Colors used:

Titanium white -Utrecht

Yellow ochre - Rembrandt

cad red medium - Rembrandt

Ivory black - Gamblin

It's back! Yes it's the old limited palette.

In my workshops we spend a lot of time working with the limited palette. Not just these particular colors.

Again I want to stress it's about relationships, everything is relative to each other. Sure the green you get is pretty dull but so is the violet. When you get them working next to each other, they really stand out. It's a bit like the old saying you dont get lights without darks.

"A sketch has charm because of its truth – not because it is unfinished."
