Torpedo Factory #4: Uh … What was I supposed to do again?

Oof.  Look at those colors.

I was supposed to make the highlights warmer and the shadows cooler.   I was instructed to mix colors on the palette before putting any paint on the canvas.  It made a big difference.

I’ve been thinking about color mixing all week.  Bought the Pantone app for the iPhone.  Very cool.

And I bought this book, which I find fascinating for some reason.  The section about mixing complementary colors to achieve more realistic and life-like gray tones was very helpful.

My yellow was too tinted, though.  Tinted?  Is that the right word?  The yellow wasn’t intense enough because I added too much white.  Oh well.
