Throwback Thursday on Tuesday tips

Hi, I’ve been getting emails asking about color.  My approach is to make it as simple as possible.  It is a lot easier to control a limited pallete.  There is no need to put all the color in the world in one painting.  In fact, a painting with a controlled pallete is more beautiful can look very colorful and dynamic.

Color Pallete: The simpler the better.


There are several go to color combination that we all know.
triadic
secondary triadic
tertiary 
monochromatic 
complementary
split complementary.

My favorite one is split complementary.  As a rule of thumb, I use one general color for most of the painting, then another color in a smaller percentage, then one color as accent.
Also, we will be at wondercon this weekend.  Stop by to SP-32.
See you there,
Griz
