“Variations on color”
Quick and dirty. Trying out some color ideas and pushing my comfort zone a bit. I will probably do several of this scene using various harmonies. The first one used a lot of yellow ochre, which is not a color I tend to dip in much. Always find it dulls and cools color down too much to my liking and has a dead thud look to it. I have started using Naples yellow more as an option. But, here’s one using yellow ochre:
Next one, same idea but using naples yellow instead of yellow ochre. These photos are so bad, and this is quick and dirty and the second one I was getting a little bored so didn’t spend much time with it, but working with naples was more comfortable to me. Maybe cuz is warmer than yellow ochre, I suspect, and is not as easy to over mix it as is yellow ochre. The next tries at this will be completely different!!!
