Tuesday Tips — Simple palette

I’m a huge fan of a simple palette.  And this is the way I approach it.

1.  I think about the main focal color that I would like to showcase.  In this example, my “pumpkin pie kitty” painting, I want to showcase the orange of the pumpkin pie; so my main color that I MUST use is orange.  

2.  Then I add black and white, and another color.  The other color will mostly likely be an analogous (orange-red or orange-yellow), complementary (blue), or shifted complementary (blue-green or blue-violet).  

3.  Do color comp.  Pick one.  And….  Happy painting!
