Not often I get to post photos of my latest obsession. Haha
Currently exploring all the colour palettes I have tucked away in my desk. Then I thought I should document a swatch of each colour in a sketchbook.
That led me to doing a bit of reading on colour theory.
So I started mixing using a colour wheel. But I didn't find it really helped me learn to mix colours.
Moved on to the grid colour chart. Quickly overwhelmed with so many colours.
Tried a smaller colour grid with a limited palette.
Getting a bit better.
By this time I have watched numerous Youtube clips and purchased a book on Colour Theory.
Then I found the colour mixing tutorial by Alek Krylow and this works for me.
Far more ordered and makes sense.
It allows me to mix eg. blues and yellows, resulting in a vast range of green values.
I plan to do this with all my colours.
Could take me until the end of the year.
Finished the oriental Lily.
Kept a light touch and achieved some form in the leaves and bulbs.
I plan to visit lots of desks over the next few days.
stay safe and have a creative week.
