Today I decided to see what kinds of stuff I could get up to with just 2 colors and white and black. The ones I used are all by Gamblin – Warm White which has a touch of yellow in it, Chromatic Black, Phthalo Turquoise and Gold Ochre.
I love the greens I was able to mix with the black and gold ochre, then lightened a bit with the warm white. I’ve mixed my own greens before with chromatic black and hansa yellow light (always reminds me of high school chemistry) but had never tried it with gold ochre as my yellow. I love it!!!! This color play is so much fun!!!
By the way, this list of colors by Gamblin is really interesting. If you click on the color tile, it’ll display a pop-up for that color with examples of the color as a glaze, tint, tone and shade.
Here’s a shot of the palette I used for today’s play.
