It can get a little wild once you move away from choosing a random Yellow, Red and Blue paint.
This time I chose a secondary triad for my painting with a limited palette ….. so here’s a bit of a refresher for those of you who might be new to color theory.
The primary colors are Yellow, Red and Blue.
The secondary colors are mixes of each of the primaries:
yellow + red = orange
red + blue = purple
blue + yellow = green
So our secondary colors are Orange, Purple and Green and these are the gouache pigments that I used.
That’s what I chose for this painting….more out of curiousity than anything else…and this is what I came up with. Fairly wild and free and a tad bit garish floral still life with lots of spunk and personality, don’t you think? I did doodle a wee bit with neocolor 2 crayons at end. My intuition was shouting “dash of blue”.
