Two limited palette studies. The left hand one is with quin magenta, cadmium yellow, cobalt teal. The right hand one is with naphthol red, cadmium lemon and winsor blue (green shade). Really surprised how close the colors are between the two sets.
This one is with the Zorn palette of cadmium red (actually naphthol), yellow ochre and black. Lovely muted colors and really surprised how blue that pot looks with only ivory black and white.
Version one of the blue pot with a limited palette. Colors used were winsor blue (green shade), cadmium lemon and naphthol red. I chose these to have the best chance of hitting the blue and the orange and hoped the rest would work out. Pretty happy.
The ex members of Paul Foxton’s Threads are carrying on with monthly exercises and this month’s is ‘limited palette’. I’m going to introduce color for the next one but wanted to start with a value study first. Pretty tricky – there are a lot of close values in there
Today was the final session in Paul Foxton’s Threads group and it was a bit sad as I’ve enjoyed these livestreams and Paul’s teaching enormously. I put extra effort in on this study and I think it paid off. Many thanks to Paul and I wish him all the best.
Yesterday was session two in Paul Foxton’s Threads workshop. I should put a word in for this if you want to learn the ins and outs of color and value. He’s a great teacher and each session is enormous fun. I’ve learned a lot and had a great time doing it. And all for $20 a month!
I’ll probably refine this a little more tomorrow. That handle is annoying me. Here it is next to the photo reference.
Actually I don’t think I posted the previous intermediates. Here they are.
