How do you choose your own personal color palette for forexambel oil paintings?
I have thought of using some of the modern bright colors of our time, but struggle a lot.
Also thought of using bright colors for underpaintings and then tone it down with the help of natural colors.
Still a stuggle!!
Now thinking I need to paint from life and photos and copy colors, because what I need is basic knowledge of colors?!!
I usually end up with an earth pigment palette with my watercolors, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, raw and burnt umber, ultramarine blue, and a few non-earth pigments, moonglow (Daniel Smith), olive green, alizarin crimson brown — they’re pretty harmonious…it would seem that burnt
sienna for the red is dull and dreadful, but with the palette it works…
