My Plein Air Journey- part 2
Today was pretty busy with things in Vancouver. Plus I had to get ready for the Oilers game! I ran out of time so no painting today. So sad.
However before the game I did some color charts for a few of the colors I brought along.
The colors from top to bottom:
Veridian green +white +black
Quinacridone Magenta +white +black
Veridian +Quinacridone Magenta +white +black
Yellow Ochre +white +black
Ultramarine Blue +white +black
Yellow Ochre +Ultramarine Blue +white +black
Cadmium Yellow Primrose +white +black
Manganese Blue +white +black
Cadmium Yellow Primrose +Manganese Blue +white +black
Mixing opposite colors give nice neutrals. I do really like Yellow primrose mixed with manganese blue!
White cools the color and black warms the color.
I will try to remember that when doing my landscapes.
Cooler colors farther in the distance. Warmer tones in front.
