Walker, sketchbook watercolor, DMannion
30 Minute Limited Palette
Day 19 of 30
Another study started in Broadmoor Park, quick pencil sketch and tiny thumbnail. Too hot to work outside, no shade in this spot.
Paine's gray thumbnail value study and limited, 3 color palette used for painting.
Permanent rose, cobalt blue, and transparent yellow oxide.
Black and white reference photo. Artistic license used to remove bird, trees, and change walker.
At least for me, it's much more interesting (and fun!) to study how colors work together by doing a limited palette sketch, instead of color charts. Also informative to see how far I can push the darks with just these three colors. Happy with how the watercolors intermingle and create passages without my help by letting them bleed to do their thing. Fascinating to see unplanned results happen!
