back in january i found a beautiful and very inspiring color palette, you can see it below. i challenged my sister sylvia to use it in a project of her choice and i loved what she came up with.
yesterday, when i was thinking of what my next paint project would be, i remembered these warm colors and wanted to incorporate them into my artwork. some of my color pencils are in the range of this palette, so i took them out today to make a sketch. my personal challenge of the day is to use these colors in a landscape painting.
my idea is to use a square canvas just like this one (in the photo you see an unfinished painting on my easel and a messy palette).
how do you go about deciding your color palette for your artwork?
i usually just go with whatever i come up with after i decided on the subject and made a few sketches. but i also like the idea of having a set palette before i even decide on the subject, it's a nice challenge!
