Exercise 22 - The complementary pair, blue and orange, with mixed yellow-orange and violet-blue. Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Scarlet, and French Ultramarine.
My exercises continue to miss the mark matching the book's colors. Of course, the book's chart portrays Ultramarine as positively violet. So, no worries.
Color charts are pleasurable enough and important for this beginner but I've been getting the urge for something different...
Here I thought I'd try a looser style with the same colors in the chart above.
Here are a couple of fun pieces based on the exercise 20 palette. I just love those colors. The one on the left was my first try. This evening I spritzed it down and added some darker values. Now I think I could have gone ever further with darks and bright blues and oranges. Even tried that toothbrush spray trick. I had in mind surfaces that might mimic stone in cave paintings.
