Hey there... Too many students get hung up on color. It's really about the shapes and values. Even though a lot of my work is colorful I love neutrals. This painting was done using Hansa Yellow, Quinacridone Rose and Phthalo Blue. With these three colors you can paint just about anything. Attaching an interesting link to several artists palettes... http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/paletfs.html In my next post I'll try and include something in a more colorful palette to show the possibilities.
