|12 x 9 inches oil study|
I have fallen in love with a new color:) When resupplying some of my oil paints, I picked a new color, Rose- Violet by Holbein. Often when I have a few new colors I will work up color charts.
Using a color, I will make a chart of the color mixed with white, and mixed with the complement, and a mix with black, to see the values and tones I can get. Having just picked one color the chart seemed boring to do. So, I took my new color Rose violet, some white oil paint, and a sheet of Arches oil paper, and did a study.
I did the study with a video going on my pc from Bright Light Fine Art . The video was excellent, but long, so painting while watching and listening, helped. Double the learning, information from the a wonderful artist; David A. Leffel, and getting to know a new color. Nice way to spend 90 minutes.
